Vincent Van Dominogh’s Starry Night: Falling Skies

 |  |  |  |  June 26, 2012


If there’s one painting that I’m obsessed about, it’s Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night. If the iPad app wasn’t enough for you, check out FlippyCat’s project, that he aptly named Vincent Van Dominogh’s Starry Night. It kind of makes sense that he used dominoes because their movement seems to capture the movement of the wind in the painting.

It took FlippyCat 11 hours and 7,067 dominoes to build his version of Starry Night. There was also a first failed attempt, which you can check out in the video below. The dominoes were stacked, arranged, and aligned in a three-dimensional configuration. Once initiated, the domino chain reaction caused all of the dominoes to fall in a cascade whose final result gives an even more impressionistic rendering of the painting.

If I had to build this, there would have been more than just one failed attempt!
