Where form meets function

Many artists train their hands to remain steady while they paint, sculpt and perform, but Korean artist Rocky Byun takes this concept to a whole new level. His party trick is finding the “balance point” in random objects like rocks, furniture, bicycles — and even humans — until they are able to free-stand.

It might sound a bit weird at first, but peep the video above and it’ll start to make sense. Rocky, known as a “balance artist,” is based out of Tancheon in South Korea, where he creates sculptures that seem to defy the laws of gravity.

It’s not just a fluke that he can balance a motorcycle atop small stones. Rocky’s knowledge of physics helps him to do the seemingly impossible — making everyday objects float on air.

Now watch the gripping first trailer for Korean crime thriller The Merciless.
