|''I saw your website one year ago, vaguely I remember a siluete of a man typing. I didn't look into it, because I seldom do,(my conection is slow). I liked the simplicity of what I saw, It reminded me of the shadow box theatre I've done before. and with flash a sillohete is the most affective imagery for the file size.
If you are conflicted because you think I stole your idea. What idea? may I ask. a man is typing at a keyboard. This is not a very original idea. How many films and paintings are based on the same visual idea, the same gesture, but given to us in an assalt of different view points, styles, colors, looks. different actors, with different personalities. a man playing the guitar, a man playing the keyboard, a man typing, a woman typing. a woman fucking, a man fucking. How can you claim one of these senerios as your own. your man typing is done in a fairly realistic manner. mine is more creature than human. in the rhelm of the fantastic. you are hollywood, I'm pixar.
And as ''an artist'' I sure as hell don't understand your concern. Jazz musicians, riff off each other. picasso stole from the africans. Matisse from the Japanese. I would love for people to use my images for the purposes of art, life, expression and creative exploration of the unknown and percieved within themselves and the world. Let's reserve copyrights and claims for the buisness men and politicians. They seem to be fucking the world up enough with this mind set.
As you can see your letter infuriated me. but also I think it touched on a nerve within my own arrogant psyche that I could actually have copied something, as blatently as your letter made it sound. So I have made some changes. I gave him eyes.
thank you, I would appreciate a link, because I'm putting one to yours. and the site is rough and and in it's preliminary stages, but I've added a title.
