65 hours to set up 60,000 bricks, 12 seconds to knock them down. I said to Julie “The gorgeous futility of this is staggering.” She said “Like being a modern dance artist.”

The Canadian YouTube user FlippyCat spends eight days building 60 large squares, each containing 990 dominoes, only to send them crashing down in a blaze of colour and noise. Over the 65 hours it takes to build he changes his T-shirt to match the blocks. It only takes 12 seconds to knock all of them down

Okay then…

    I do love that it takes so long to build and so little to bring crashing down. Very true to life.
