Lovebot

100 Lovebots take to the streets of Toronto

Two Toronto dudes are taking it upon themselves to remind those of us living in the city just how lovely we can really be. They've chosen to illustrate this point using robots. Rodger Beck and artist Matthew Del Degan have embarked on a city-wide art project called The Robot Love Invasion. "The aim of our project is to illuminate the love, kindness and compassion that exists in Toronto and help inspire and spread more of the same," Beck says.

The project's symbol is Lovebot, pictured above. No fewer than 100 2' tall concrete statues of Lovebot will be put on display in "secret locations" across the city. Like humans, each statue is connected to a specific story of love, kindness or compassion that the curators have collected from the public. The call for submissions is still open,too. Pay Lovebot a visit on Facebook, or the Feel Good Guru on Queen West, Atomic Toybot on Queen East, Serpentine on Cumberland or A&C Games on Spadina. Happy lovins!
