One of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous works of art is his 1889 painting 'Starry Night.' This famous masterpiece has inspired countless re-creations and tributes over the years, but one very committed artist used a less traditional medium: dominoes.
The recreation of the art masterpiece was done by YouTube user FlippyCat.
He writes about this latest work:
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 :(
