The image captures Skryf, the creature by Dutch artist Gijs van Bon programmed to write letters and to draw with sand. The computer calculates the coordinates and activates the three motors that control the exit of sand. Machine and creativity are complicit in an operation of precision the destiny of which is determined by the surrounding conditions. Dissappearence is part of the game.
