Balancing Act
September 1998

this gentleman can be found at the palace of fine arts in san francisco, usually near the exploratorium.  i've witnessed him doing this many times.  there is no glue, no wires, no trick whatsoever.

the artist is so skilled that it takes him just a few seconds to balance some of the most amazing things.  every once in a while the breeze, or maybe an insect or slight seismic tremor causes one of the objects to fall adding to the reality of what he's accomplished.  i strongly recommend checking out this incredible display, the images here don't do it justice.
