“Skryf is based on CNC (computer numerical control) milling machines. This technique consists of manipulating tools by a computer. The technique used in Skryf is constructed so Skryf can write letters and drawings with sand. (...) The computer calculates the right coordinates, and three motors control the ‘mouth’ where the sand comes from. Different fonts, but also logos and drawings are possible to draw. Skyf writes with white bird sand.”
