Here are some video highlights from my recent year (2015) of balancing rocks... in a variety of locations around the world, including: England, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Croatia, Romania, Taiwan, Costa Rica, United States.
All structures were balanced with my two hands, then documented, then taken down when finished (practicing a 'leave no trace' ethic as i go). . . each structure took maybe an average of an hour to complete? including finding rocks, and puzzle solving toward a 'beautiful and elegant solution'. some take minutes. others, days of contemplation, sometimes frustration, and/or simply feeling through the zero points. The most intriguing aspect for me is the variety of stone families around the world. fractal style. a whole climate system may have a similar thread of rock families, but within that climate, each creek, each cove, becomes distinct from the rest. even down to smaller nooks and pockets in each. infinite complexity --> infinite possibility.
There's not really any storyline, plot, or whatever to this film... it is simply a sequence of clips i recorded along my journey, traveling and balancing as a way of life.
