Diary of a Rock Balancer ::
Stone Balance Art created (28 Oct 2015) and photographed by Michael Grab — 13 April 2016 — Colorado, USA ::
I built this arch on October 28th, 2015. I thought there was no way it lasted through an entire winter in Boulder.. I returned yesterday to find the core arch still holding strong (169 days after zero, 5 months!!), even with significant rise in water level. Even after countless freezes, not to mention the thaws and tumbling ice. Even through high winds that mangled the strongest trees, not to mention the following debris buildups. And humans! Funny, i spent 2 months in 3 different countries during the life of this arch (so far.. about to be four).. all those full throttle adventures and experiences… meanwhile this arch just sat here with zero fomo.
Gravity is gravipush. What is gravipush? (Gauv Grauv’s top science theory)
In the multiverse big bang, bang everywhere when it is ready. It doesn’t matter big bang or small bang or tiny bang or hand clap bang, all the bang are energy that have release into the universe everywhere in space and bothers to all objects even atom or particle that I call: “stress pressure of the universe”. Those stress pressure travel straight line in space to all direction in speed of light without block each other and push to all objects form together even atom call “gravipush” (old word call gravity). All objects in space have blocked each other stress pressure of the universe made the stress pressure unbalance so those objects will run toward low pressure to each other by gravipush. Bigger object has bigger mass, bigger mass has more gravinet, more gravinet can block more stress pressure and get more gravipush.
So I announce publicly: From now on no more gravity but gravipush to all scientists all over around the world. Thank you

Rich Roxburgh sick
Sick isnt he!!
Unbelievable, just wow!
Is that your longest lasting one?
i think so
Made even stronger by the adverse forces at play, it’s a beautiful thing. And yes, most danger posed by humans.
ahhh…. yes, but with age and time we realize that all things that matter withstand time and are infinite
It looks like fingers clinging to a rock from under the water. Freaky.

That tiny stone bridge is stronger than I.
I am crying it’s too real :(
Damn Joseph And-Rosie Comine
You got the keystone right for a solid arch.
You need to get a life. Lol
My favorite so far!
Ment to be
Awesome that is truly awesome;
Holy chaza, that is so crazy and cool. I like the zero fomo comment. I could learn something from that arch:)
That is awesome xxx
Wow. Just…. WOW.
videos plss not picture
Ur work totally amazes me. Thanks for sharing them.
So amazing–ephemeral art that endures–you are amazing.
Your lucky that sheriff dude didn’t arrest you
On what charges?
“Stacking rocks”.. I read an article last week that the cops out there, were trying to stop you from doing that.
Joel Vazquez oooo… i think that article was form last year, in which case yes they did try to stop me but were unsuccessful. now it seems to be more a generally accepted activity.
You’re reverence for your creations in transcendental
Lol, that’s amazing!
Belinda N Tony ♡
Another surprise and amazing thing happened!
Ese maravilloso pegamento llamado gravedad, great job!!
Just goes to show your work is timeless!
This reminds me of the horses sculpture fountain at the Versailles Palace, France.
Your new sculpture is interesting because it directly interacts with the surroundings, with the elements….. conveying meaning. Instead of just being a piece in front of a great travelling decor.
My two cents.
Traveling or not, every creation I make is a function of all past experience and the immediate environment. Never separate.
And in this one with the water flooding the piece, as a spectator, I personnaly feel it even more.
Continue the good work, and the good reflection that you are sharing with us.
now That is AMAZING !
Kristen Christian y’all look for this guys art! Sooo sick!
Jacob Haley, show your dad this, k? thx
I will when I get back from Costa Rica :)
Really like this one….
Love it , you got me hooked , if you ever pass through Indiana would love to meet you maybe stack a few !
amazing… building bridges everywhere
This is a great one.!
A band of elves rebuilds it every night ;)
Wanna see it!!!!
I bow to the Master.
Job well done.
I saw it a couple days ago and it made me smile
It gives one a better understanding of Egyption and Roman architecture. I love it! (y) B| (y)
Me, beginer. :-)
When in Boulder, do as the boulders do… ;)
Its amazing doing rock arches because it is so structurally good but the difficult to build. I’ve had structures stay up for a couple weeks. Its more amazing when the rock stacks stay up for a while.
Fantastic & congrats…!
I’m havering trouble with some of my arches is there any pointers you could give to help an aspiring artist?
Relax and keep trying your patience will pay off.
Incredible inspiration <3
That’s just amazing

how do you make this do you have to make 2 towers and then lean them against each other
Sorry but how is this the original to the main pic? I can’t quite picture those rocks in this pic what so ever (absolutely brilliant regardless) but did you link the wrong pic?
Josh O’Brien most of the rocks have gotten washed away by the looks of it..high water levels and everything he described made it slightly smaller..maybe that is all that is left of said arch still amazing none the less
Josh O’Brien this is the original. With all the extra rocks on top. The new photo is of the same core arch, shot from other side. Same rocks I placed 5 months ago. All the extras taken by erosion/entropy.
that makes complete sense! Thank you very much for the explanation :) I just couldn’t quite work it out
Gravity Glue in which part of the creek is it?
