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. No two sculptures are the same: 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).
