Artist Creates Gravity-Defying Towers Of Balanced Rocks To Meditate

Posted on Art 97

We’re having a difficult time determining if Michael Grab is an artist or a magician, considering that he builds breathtaking structures from carefully balanced rocks that appear to resist the principles of physics.

These apparently impossible structures demand extreme concentration and meditative focus. In the video below, Grab stays frozen for quite a few minutes, doing little changes until he gets all of the rocks’ centers of gravity exactly right.

“Over the past few years of practicing rock balance, simple curiosity has evolved into therapeutic ritual, ultimately nurturing meditative presence, mental well-being, and artistry of design,” writes Grab in his artist statement.
