The Austrian Domino Art has this video showcasing a set up of 100,000 dominos which looks like it may have been quite painful to set up. Fascinatig to see the little "crossings" set up to prevent failure of the entire creation.

In November 2013 we built up 100,000 dominoes under the theme "Lower Austria" together with 50 students of the HLUW Yspertal.
After 4 days of setup and 5 month of preperations 100,080 of 100,101 dominoes (99,98%) toppled!

We set up different famous buildings of Lower Austria and an official Guinness World Record: The Tallest Domino Structure with a height of 6.029 m and 11,465 dominoes!

Of course, some fails happened, but we built safety gaps to prevent bigger fails.
