"At the end, we decided to take this character out of representation. So we set up a fireworks event called ‘A Smile Without a Cat’, blowing it up. And we decided to give the copyright to the sign, to the creature or character itself. I freed it from being represented. It cannot be represented any more. At least, it’s a transformation- not an end."
