Balance Artist: Michael Grab
Alias: “Gravity Glue”
My name is Michael Grab, and I began balancing rocks via “happy accident” in the Summer of 2008 while exploring Boulder Creek (Boulder, CO, USA). Since then, curious spark has spiraled into creative passion, way of life, and prolific international phenomenon/movement.
I quickly noticed the therapeutic/transformative effects that balancing and working with nature had on myself and others; in an artistic sense, but also nurturing something uniquely human, inspiring a sense of magic and peace, luring awareness out of the mind and into the moment — ultimately cultivating a meditative presence.
“Gravity Glue” is the alias I created to describe and share my experience in the realm of Stone Balance Art/Yoga
Gravity is the only “Glue” that holds these structures in equilibrium.
Gravity Glue on the surface was initially created for sharing my balance art; However, through time and experience, the cultivated ethos of GG appears to demonstrate a process of learning to “flow” as an integral function of Nature. It is an archetype for creation, whose key to the universe is creative active meditation and alignment with nature, through which, one touches/experiences infinity on a regular basis.
A spontaneous collaboration with Nature, which often spirals into moments of transcendental beauty.
