Imitation is the Sincerest Blah Blah Blah

An open letter to the anonymous “XYZ”, who sent me a link to the website of another person making robots from found objects:
Yes, I am very familiar with the artist in question. We met a couple of times in St. Louis, have corresponded on several occasions, and she has purchased two Fobots from me. I have no problem with her making found object robots. She is not copying my designs, and she seems like a lovely person. I did have an issue in the past with someone who was attempting to copy my designs EXACTLY–I think we can all agree that that is wrong. But there are a number of people making work similar to mine now–I guess that’s just the price of success. Good luck to them. In the meantime, I will continue to try and create the most innovative designs I can, using the coolest materials I can find, putting them together as sturdily as possible, and letting the public decide which ones they want.MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA
