We are an Austrian group of students that realizes chain reactions, particularly with dominoes. What does this mean in detail?
You’ll probably remember “Domino Day”: An international TV show that fascinated millions of people from 1998 till 2009. When our projects and events are discovered most of the people think of this show. Basically, we do the same: We place thousands of small plastic stones in a way that (hopefully) all of them topple after a single push-over. At first glance this sounds fairly simple. Actually, creating professional chain reaction takes a lot of time (see below “How a domino project is created”).
In March 2008 Marcel Pürrer and Mathias Ritter found the Austrian domino group ”Austrian Domino Art”. At the same time they created the same named YouTube channel. At first they started with only a few hundred dominoes. Over the years we changed to videos in better quality and greater and more creative projects.
How a domino project is created
First there is only an idea. In earlier days we then started to build. Today we do a lot of more thoughts about it. We discuss the best way to setup the dominoes (a brainstorming is very helpful). Domino pictures, better known as fields, are planned with the help of the computer. This gives us the opportunity to ”draw with the stones”. Furthermore we think of the light setting and of the camera alignment. After finishing all this we start with the setup of the dominoes.
When building a screenlink, which consist of many parts, we try to put in different facets of one theme. In the end we link all this parts to a huge video. Our video for the YouTube channel ”dailyknoedel”, which can be found below, is a screenlink.
