Would you take the time to setup over 7,000 dominos just for your Christmas card? 20-year-old professional domino artist Hevesh5 did and it’s incredible!
According to Hevesh5, she had “…wanted to try building [a] large fancy font freehanded out of dominoes, so I decided to build ‘Merry Christmas’ in cursive”.
This apparently involves, “…lots of proportions, measuring, and eye-balling,” and “…it was also a challenge to figure out how to get this to topple sequentially by letter, since everything was connected in cursive (however, sometimes not in the direction it needed to topple). I had to tape down a few one way dominoes to ensure that the path would keep going in the right direction.”
It sounds like a huge amount of work, but the end result is worth all of the effort!
