It takes a crew of five working in close quarters with me to help enable these autograph sessions, and we couldn’t find a safe and practical way to complete what I needed to do during an outbreak. Therefore, during the epidemic, it was impossible to sign anything and the vertigo did not help. As contractual deadlines approached, the idea of ​​a robotic device was proposed, along with the assertion that this sort of thing was done “all the time” in the art and literature worlds. Using a machine was an error in judgment and I want to correct it immediately. I’m working with Simon & Schuster and my gallery partners to do just that. With my deepest regrets, Bob Dylan”
