Gravity Glue: Miraculous Balancing Acts

Friday 12.07.2012 , Posted by

I would hate to play Jenga with this guy! Michael Grab has mastered the art of finding balance points and in this created amazing rock sculptures held together by nothing more than gravity. The result is absolutely beautiful, ephemeral pieces that would be awe-inspiring to see in person. Grab often shares his spiritual talent with others by creating his Gravity Glue sculptures in public places. According to Grab, “Alongside the art, setting rocks into balance has also become a way of showing appreciation, offering thanksgiving, and inducing meditation. Through manipulation of gravitational threads, the ancient stones become a poetic dance of form and energy, birth and death, perfection and imperfection. they become a reflection of ourselves in a way; precariously sturdy, mysterious and fragile.”
