Michael Grab is an artist that has been ‘rock balancing‘ since 2008. Much of his recent work has been done around the Boulder, Colorado area, and he finds the process both spiritual and therapeutic.
On Michael’s site gravityglue.com, he explains: “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of ‘tripod’ for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another.”
His skills are amazing and I wouldn’t be surprised if he is secretly training to be a Jedi. Look at how some of these rock formations look near impossible!:
Michael = Jedi in Training?
A beautiful round rock formation.
Rocks balancing in the harbor.
He makes it look like the rocks are defying gravity, amazing!
Lots of rocks used in this piece atop a small stream.
How does this work?
It’s even more impressive when he uses different shaped rocks.
A cool formation on the stream.
Another great view of the round formation.
Perfect example of why its called ‘Gravity Glue’.
It looks so simple yet so complicated.
I wonder how long they’ll stay there.
Michael defies gravity yet again.
I don’t know how those rocks aren’t just sliding off.
Ok its confirmed. Michael is a Jedi.
Michael, you’re awesome and good luck with all the Jedi training. I hope we see some more images soon from him, maybe he’ll start balancing boulders?
