Industrious domino artist FlippyCat recreated Vincent van Gough’s famous Starry Night painting using 7,067 dominoes stacked vertically and horizontally to create an impressive chain reaction that seems to sprawl in the same direction as the artist’s brushstrokes. The video above contains some pretty heartbreaking outtakes as well. See also his Domona Lisa from 2007. (via neatorama)
