The Art Of Rock Balancing
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. Grab---yes,
that's his real name---finds the process both spiritual and therapeutic.
"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.
Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental
non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am
referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself.
Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience.
The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise."
