ARTIST: Michael Grab – Gravity Glue
STONE BALANCE: Gravity is the only “Glue” that holds these structures in equilibrium.
Michael Grab was born in Edmonton, Canada in 1984 and relocated to Boulder, Colorado in 2002 to attend University. He stumbled upon the art of stone balance through an unexpected whim in the summer of 2008. Since then he has gained a local reputation for designing highly unlikely balanced rock formations up and down Boulder Creek, which flows through the heart of Boulder. While Michael is based in Boulder, he has also gone on to travel around the world to share his artistry and continue his creation in unique locations, including Sweden, Scotland, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Croatia, Ukraine, and Canada. He plans to continue sharing the practice worldwide by performing, teaching, learning, and applying, his developing mastery of an ancient practice.
I am constantly in awe at the stillness, let alone possibility, of such precarious formations, amidst sometimes very turbulent conditions. For me this reflects our own potential to maintain a still-point amidst the variety of challenges we each face throughout our lives. Further, I wish to highlight the idea that WE ARE creators of our own reality, rather than mere recipients. Consciousness affects reality. This practice allows one to freely create, manifesting their own particular vibration into a 3D world.
