In this project Steur captured the audience in a giant web, an air plane in a trap and himself in a cocoon. These installations manipulated the spectators freedom when walking through an abandoned brick factory. 3km white rope was Steurs artistic contribution within the Borderline project, in which he invited several artists to create new work without using any electricity. The aim was to draw inspiration solely from the ruins. Steur was intrigued by how flora (and fauna) was able to create room for itself, in and around the old bricks. It inspired him to work with rope as a building material.
