Lily Hevesh Creates Colorful Spiral Out Of 15,000 DominosLily Hevesh took her talent and fascination for dominos and turned it into a full-time job. Her grandparents gave her a first set of 28 when she was 10 years old. They didn’t know she would take the hobby so seriously, but we’re glad she did.
Seven years later, Lily has grown her collection of dominos to more than 60,000. After posting her videos on YouTube and getting millions of views, the part-time hobby turned full-time. She calls herself a professional domino artist and now posts a new video of her colorful creations almost every Saturday for her 865,000 subscribers. This new video posted a week ago already has over 9 million views. It’s called “The Amazing Triple Spiral.” The creation took 15,000 dominos and 25 hours to complete. In 2011, she completed a similar design, but it was much smaller. She needed time to plan for a creation of this large scale.
Hevesh described her patience and domino love to CBS News.
I like to watch them fall. It’s a lot of hard concentration, but I don’t mind it.Hevesh encourages anyone to try their hand at domino creations. However, the 17-year-old acknowledges that the meticulous work is not for everyone.
You just have to have the determination and persistence to restart and keep going. Take it slow, be very cautious when you’re building, and if it falls down, know that it’s part of the domino process.That process is 25 hours of hard work for 1 minute and 30 seconds of spectacular beauty.
