Daily Whimsy: 15,000 Domino Spiral

Havesh5 - Fair Use via Youtube

The Daily Catch - published on 09/13/16

This is the most impressive domino spiral we’ve seen . The girl goes by the name Havesh5 and she’s done quite a few of these domino videos.

It Despite the incredibly disproportionate build/fall time, watching multi-level domino spiral is so dazzling to watch. While it’s crazy to think about spending 25 hours on something that you’ll just knock down in under two minutes, the dominoes fall in such a beautiful pattern that it makes the long hours put into setting everything up seem totally worth it. Of course this isn’t Hevesh5’s first amazing piece of domino art. Her channel is full of amazing and intricate designs. However, the triple spiral is her longest build to date.

It’s baffling to imagine how much careful effort she exerted over 25 hours of stacking, all the while knowing one false move could spoil everything. We’ve always been a fan of domino shows. There is something in the controlled demolition of toy structures that really speaks to our inner children.
