When starting the process of creating a new Drop Sculpture, Steur enters a specific location ‘blanc’. The idea is to not have a premeditated idea, other then to (in some way) use waterdrops. “This method creates space to sense the subtle, hidden qualities of a room, space for inspiration”. Next, he introduces water as a physical communicator between his findings and the visitor. Finally, the gentle though powerful quality of water can be seen in a continuous, repetitive movement. It gives an opportunity to bring the observer back to the present and revalue (a specific) space and time.
