Artist Lily Hevesh’s Domino Art
A domino is a small, rectangular block that features an arrangement of spots or “pips” on one side and blank or identically patterned on the other. There are several types of domino sets, with the most common consisting of 28 tiles. A domino set can be used for various games, including blocking and scoring. Other uses of the pieces include creating patterns and constructing art.
Dominos are usually played by two or more people, with each player taking a turn to play one of their dominoes on the table. The first player to place their dominoes in a line or a shaped pattern wins the game. A player can also win the game by putting down all of their remaining dominoes before their opponents do.
The word “domino” also refers to a person or event that triggers a chain reaction with unforeseen consequences. This is the concept behind the phrase, “domino effect,” which describes an action that has a ripple effect, similar to the way that one domino knocks over the next. The idiom has been used by popular culture, from movies like the Clint Eastwood “Dirty Harry” series to real life events that have a similar effect.
Lily Hevesh has been fascinated by dominoes since she was a child and began collecting them. She soon started making videos of her domino creations online and now has more than 2 million YouTube subscribers. She has made domino structures for movies, TV shows, and even an album launch for singer Katy Perry. Hevesh is considered a domino artist because of her ability to create complex, curved lines and awe-inducing displays that show off her skills and creativity.
Hevesh’s inspiration for her domino artwork comes from watching her grandparents play with the classic 28-piece set when she was a child. She was especially amazed by the effect that tipping just one domino ever-so-slightly had on the rest of the line. That same type of chain reaction is what she strives to achieve with her own work.
In addition to straight lines and curved displays, Hevesh has created a number of 3D structures. Her art can be as simple or elaborate as she wants, and she has incorporated themes of music, nature, and other subjects into her works.
Although Domino’s is best known for its pizza, the company is involved in a wide range of ventures beyond that core business. It is experimenting with delivery by drones and has worked with crowd-sourced auto designers to create a custom-made Domino’s vehicle that has been called a “domino lover’s Batmobile.” The company has also expanded its brand into coffee and other foods, but its primary goal remains pizza. The company’s strategy is to think golbal and act local, and Domino’s focuses on providing products that people want in their own communities. In the United States, Domino’s has more than 2,300 locations. In 2016, the company reported revenue of $1.8 billion. Its shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
