Rock balancing

Me and Dave ventured out to do some rock balancing in the dry river bed at JOYA, taking inspiration from Michael Grab.

Obviously ours weren't quite as impressive! 

The rock balancing gives a similar effect to Damien Hirst's work with animals (posted previously) in the sense that time seems to stand still, the rocks aren't affected by outside forces like gravity and time. 

Creating these sculptures was good fun and could be therapeutic when all was going well, a different story when they constantly fall down! They work well for me as well because of where they are, made in natural surroundings this evokes the idea of time being slower in the rural areas.

People flock from there busy jobs and lives in the city for a break in the countryside because time moves at a different rate there.
