What is it that’s so fascinating about things like this? I don’t know, but they’re sure fun to watch.
This one was built by Hevesh5, who describes herself as a professional Domino Artist. (I didn’t know that was a thing, either.) She designs and builds “intricate domino setups and chain reactions for your entertainment and for commercial projects.”
Building the triple spiral structure in the video took her 25 hours spread over eight days, and used 15,000 dominoes. Even so, it’s not her biggest solo structure—one of her projects used 22,000 dominoes, and a group effort used 250,000.
She started building dominoes in 2009, after watching videos on YouTube, and posts new videos herself every Saturday at 1pm EST.
