One day. One line of dominoes. A celebration across the city. (6 Feb 2016)

Experience the thrill of thousands of breezeblock ‘dominoes’ falling one by one to create a moving
sculpture, running through the city and unfolding over the course of a day. Along paths and promenades, through buildings and across plazas, the domino line works its way through the urban fabric of Melbourne, creating an unforgettable celebration for all who live, work or visit our city.

Conceived and directed by UK-based Station House Opera, Dominoes was first created as a celebration to link the five “host boroughs” for the London Olympics Arts Festival and the project has since been presented in over ten European cities.

Saturday 6 February 2016

  • The Domino set up across the city commences from 1pm
  • The Domino Fall will start from 5pm
 Important Information

  • From 1pm, Saturday 6 February, our team of volunteers will be building the domino line which will weave almost 2km through the city. Explore the Dominoes route then pick a spot along the way to experience a section of the fall (no access to St Pauls Cathedral before 2pm). Download the Dominoes route map here.
  • The Domino Fall will start from 5pm. Once the first domino falls, the line will take approximately 25 minutes to reach Arts Centre Melbourne.
  • Dominoes Melbourne ‘viewing hubs’ are areas identified as offering good vantage points for certain sections of the fall.
  • All viewing hubs are accessible via wheelchair. Campbell Arcade and Flinders Street Subway are only accessible via stairs.
  • Please note road closure times when planning your journey into the city.
  • Consider catching public transport.
  • Access to the Flinders Street Subway beyond Campbell Arcade requires a Myki. If you touch on your Myki to enter the subway area and touch off within 15 minutes you won’t attract a Myki charge. See PTV website for details on Myki charges.
  • Dominoes will be filmed and photographed by Arts Centre Melbourne staff from set up to fall.
  • In the days following the event, you can experience the whole fall online. Keep an eye on this page or our Facebook Page.
  • Have a chat to anyone in a Dominoes t-shirt for all information about the fall and access to areas along the route.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)
