On the 20th of April 2020, San, a fabricated digital character inhabiting Kattou’s video projects since 2017, was programmed to get to the outskirts of its original ecosystem situated close to Nicosia, Cyprus and which has been digitally simulated in a video game engine. On that evening at around 18:20 local time, the creature started following the Sun witnessed and recorded by the artist.
