Starry Night – Vincent Van Domino
So what you can tag the wall with a spray? Or you’re a Monet with a paint brush? Check out FlippyCat as she does Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” with just dominoes!
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!
There were 2 small breaks in the fall of this project. I did not complete the leading grey line and left out a domino which stopped the reaction in the bottom. The star that is left standing was very close to falling, but the first dominos held in place
Have you seen my Domona Lisa I made in 2007?
UPDATE: I counted the dominos, and there were 7067 used.
Music used in this video is titled “Time Flux” by Revolution Void
(The original track has been remixed to fit the setup sequence)
