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 fragile but huge sculptures without using any electrical machinery, all by hand. Once balance occurs he disturbs it and picks a different rock, working non stop to find yet a new, different way to balance the two (human sized rocks).
