Artist Michael Grab Builds Rock-Stack Like An Ace. And They Are 100% Real

Updated on 17 July, 2016 at 11:26 am By

Ever thought of building a rock tower? Balancing rocks, Jenga pieces, or just about anything gets complicated as soon as you get some height going–but it’s not difficult for Michael Grab, an artist with the skills of a magician. His impossible looking stacks of rocks appear to be an optical illusion, but they are not. No tricks involved here, Grab’s balanced rocks are 100% the real deal.

Using intense concentration and meditative focus Grab is able to stack rocks in ways that seem to defy all logic.

Grab says, “Over the past few years of practicing rock balance, simple curiosity has evolved into therapeutic ritual, ultimately nurturing meditative presence, mental well-being, and artistry of design.”

The meditative practice of stone stacking, which is  created by Grab himself, is highlighted at his website- Gravity Glue.

He admits to using, “patience, adaptation, slow-breathing, steady hands, and a plethora of other practiced skills…”

Grab first began messing around with stacking rocks. A curious habit turned into a “prolific creative passion” which now involves daily practice alongside meditation.

How does Grab make the rocks look like this? He explains that an object needs at least 3 points of contact to balance. He says that he uses finely tuned senses to hear and feel where the nicks and creases in the rocks are located, because it is within these spaces that the rocks can hold together.

Grab said “…One of the greatest challenges is to overcome any doubt that may arise.”

Although that’s not the only reason Grab practices rock stacking. He quickly realized that his work proved anything is possible, and people love that stuff, heck we need it!

Grab’s unique artwork proves the best thing you can do for yourself is live without doubt. Even the most trying and difficult circumstances can be overcome, made to work, and in such wonderful ways
