Not matter how many times I saw Michael Grab‘s balancing rock work, I always be amazed. The Colorado-based artist is adept at finding an intrinsic balance within his natural supplies, perceiving a harmony despite the chaotic conditions that surround each precarious structure. To build something like that, Grab needs to combine physical methodology with equally vital mental components in order to tune into himself and his environment, and find that essential place of stillness. Just like how it sounds, it is pretty complicated. But if you have an astonishing sense of balance, a lot of patience, practice and steady hands, it is still possible. So take some time to do some balancing work, you don’t need to be as expert as Grab. But the whole procss of balancing is acutally therapeutic and meditative.
There are many types of balance art, it can be applied on human body, on rock and stone or on bread like what Ana Dominguez and Omar Sosa did for Apartamento magazine. The series, shot by photographer Nacho Alegre, is like a beautiful architectural symphony—a visual ode to baguettes, ciabatta, and rye. As loafs sit atop another, foodies find a new trend to love, or perhaps try at home. Towers of bread defying the law of gravity and glorifying the art of bread making. Each sculptural creation is a delicious masterpiece in its own right. [source]
Colorado based land artist Mike Grab balances breathtakingly high and precarious stacks of stones, creating mesmerizing natural sculptures he calls “Gravity Glue.” Using little more than patience and an astonishing sense of balance, the ancient stones become a poetic dance of form and energy, birth and death, perfection and imperfection.
In biomechanics, balance is a cup. To maintain the center of gravity of a body or object within the base of support with minimal postural sway.
For a human, to keep balance requires integration of inputs from multiple senses with the motor system responsible for muscle actions. The senses must detect the change of the body position with respect to the base (whether the body moves or the base moves).
In this blog, we will see some amazing photos of balance, including body balance and object balance.
