Japanese artist Miyoko Shida has gained international praise for her spellbinding performance in the video above.
Her performance is a balancing act, called the Sanddorn Balance — where an entire structure that is held together with a single feather. It’s also an act that wouldn’t be possible without full attention to the present moment.
Her incredible display of concentration and stability will make you realize just how fragile everything on this planet is, how everything is interconnected. Each movement, every stick she adds to the wooden arrangement and brush of her foot along the floor has a purpose.
The structure begins to appear as if it is supporting itself all on its own, like some sort of magic trick that leaves you in a trance.
You won’t believe what happens once she removes that little white feather.
