Defying Gravity

No, not the great song from the even greater musical, Wicked. I’m referring to another act of science in this case.

Colarado-based land artist Michael Grab patiently stacks pieces of rocks in his free time to create a whole bunch of gravity-defying rock structures. Not exactly sure how he manages these, but his series “Gravity Glue” is quite the feat I’d say.

“If not observed carefully, one small rock can bring [it all] down.” – Michael Grab

Apparently, ‘rock balancing’ is an art that has that has been practiced by many cultures around the world for centuries.

Patience and pure focus. Perhaps something you should pick up when you’re stressed, and in need of a therapeutic and meditative activity.
