The trick to building with dominoes is incredible patience. Nobody embodies this more than YouTube user FlippyCat. In this rather amazing video, FlippyCat creates and then demolishes a surprisingly accurate version of Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night. With dominoes. All total, the effort took about 11 hours. Fortunately, the video is sped up and mistakes are few. The couple of times required to reset the accidental releases are painful to watch because it’s impossible not to empathize. One can only imagine how frustrating it would have been had the entire thing been knocked prematurely. That’s the hazards of working with a material designed to fall down. In other words, I guess that’s the way the domino tumbles.
