Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" (with dominoes)
(CBS News) Let's see, so far today we've managed to give you great music and adorable animal antics here at The Feed. I'd say it's about time for some culture, though, wouldn't you? And nothing says culture more than Vincent van Gogh's legendary painting "Starry Night". Did I happen to mention it's in domino form? No? My bad, it's in domino form. You should check this one out.
The wonderful recreation of the art masterpiece was done by YouTube user FlippyCat, who was featured here on The Feed last month for showing us what 60,000 dominoes falling looks like. He writes about this latest work:
Star falling or not in the end, the piece was amazing and we definitely want to take a moment to give a big triple-rainbow salute for yet another amazing work. And to check out more videos from FlippyCat, you can visit his YouTube page by clicking here.
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 :(
