Lily Hevesh is the Picasso of domino art, at just 20 years old. While you might not know the moniker Hevesh5, Lily is the embodiment of what the changing face of celebrity is coming to mean. With corporate clients and millions of YouTube subscribers, she finds herself in the scary/enviable position of possibly needing to leave college to fully devote herself to her craft.  Her designs are fascinating: mixing together the elegance of beautiful architecture with the impermanence of a perfectly made dinner and playfulness of a Rube Goldberg machine. Watching Lily grow as a person is almost as rewarding as seeing her development as an artist. She and her merry band of outsider friends carve out a place for themselves in the world, and it is impossible not to root for Lily as every domino tile of her life slides precariously into place.
