Thousands of breezeblocks create a moving sculpture running across the city like a line of Dominoes. In Copenhagen, 7000 blocks drew a 3 km route through the city with the building blocks our cities are built of.

This day the city belonged to art. Traffic was stopped, and people got together in the streets. 200 people as volunteers who built the installation, and 25.000 more protecting the fragile line and finally watching, running and experiencing the slowly falling cascade of blocks through both well-known and hidden parts of the city.

The dominoes linked diverse communities in a physical and symbolic chain of cause and effect. Dominoes is a performative installation, allowing art to escape the gallery, engage the public, and transform an idea so simple and playful into a major, social and contemporary artistic action.
