Domino Dump Turns Into Van Gogh Painting [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on July 9th, 2012

We’ve seen a lot of domino projects in our day, but this is the first one we’ve seen that turns into a piece of classic art when it’s done.

Courtesy of domino enthusiast FlippyCat:

I recreated Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” from just over 7,000 dominos. The second attempt took about 11 hours total to build.

The first attempt failed, when I dropped a screw from the camera rig onto it. I was able to improve the swirling clouds better in the second attempt as a result though. I do not know how long the first attempt took, but I did not have any accidents building like I did in the second attempt!

Next up, Edvard Munch’s The Scream?
