The zen of rock balancing
Check out his gallery, as well as work from other contributors.
And oooo, here’s an easily overlooked bird gallery!
I think I want to learn this, but I have no stones. I’ve been practicing with the pugs, but I have to wait until they’re asleep.
if this is real, it’s awfully cool.
holy fuck this is some degobah system art. I, like the rev, thought it was shop’d crap until I saw the vid.
it’s funny how they link the inuit rock balancing… it’s like seeing cromagnon man standing next to homosapien.
man, i still don’t know about this stuff. the video could easily be rigged as well. I mean, everything has a center of gravity, so it’s theoretically possible. But it just seems to unrealistic.
rev, i just said i’ve seen it w/ mine own eyes. i swear it’s real. these guys have a LOT of time on their hands. the guy i know in particular is clinical, no doubt about it. he’s constantly talking to his rocks w/ the full expectation that they’re going to actually talk back. in any event, these guys really get to know the rocks they’re dealing w/.
well, more power to ‘em then. I wouldn’t mind seeing this in person myself. I look at those pictures and every ounce of Reason says it can’t be.
That there’s purty.
yeah, there’s some guy here in seattle that regularly does this stuff on the sidewalk a few blocks from my apartment. after seeing it i still can’t believe it. there’s one impossible sculpture that he’s only able to do for a couple days during the equinox, b/c of whatever strange gravitational effects going on at that time.
Cookie, I want to see a picture of Pughenge.
If you need a steady base for the pugs, you can borrow Ari.
