A PIECE OF 2
balancing human sized rocks
In this seven hour during loop Steur uses steel and muscle to show the forces of nature, by balancing boulders of a few thousand kilos on top of each other with painstaking precision. He tries to create a fragile but huge sculpture without using any electrical machinery, all by hand. Once balance occurs he disturbs it and picks a different rock, working non stop to find a completely new balance between the two.
