David Lipson assembles one-of-a-kind robot sculptures from random objects. He has sold approximately 700 of them to date. His robots have been featured in museums, galleries, books and on television.
Previously, David spent 17 years as a producer of animation for film and television. Credits include: “The Venture Bros” (Cartoon Network), “Saturday Night Live” (NBC), “The Howard Stern Show” (CBS), “Lizzie McGuire” (Disney), “School House Rock” (Disney), and “Word World“ (PBS).
Whether it was robots in film, television, or the tin toy wind-up robots I used to play with as a kid, they have always captured my imagination. So much so that creating robots of my own design has become my career. I use objects old and new to build them, with some of the recycled materials dating back to the turn of the 20th century.
I am constantly intrigued by the shape and form that these miscellaneous parts form when assembled together.
