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!

Here’s more on her piece:

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.
