What is The Robot Love Invasion?
Led by designer and Lovebot creator Matthew Del Degan, The Robot Love Invasion (#LoveInvasion) is a Canadian-based art movement to share love and kindness. In August 2013, with a group of over 30 volunteers, Del Degan created an loveing army of 100+ 250 lb child-sized Lovebot statues. Each concrete monument acts as a catalyst to share love and kindness, and honours individuals or organizations that have made Toronto a better place. Lovebots and their corresponding stories can be discovered on lovebot.com.
The Love Invasion was featured on the cover of the Toronto Star and has garnered further attention from major networks including Global, CBC, Space Network, MTV and CTV National, as well as numerous design publications, radio stations, newspapers and blogs.
This project has spawned The Global Love Invasion movement now lead by Del Degan and his charitable initiative the Lovebot Leaders. The Global Love Invasion consists of people from all over the world contributing to love and kindness in their communities.
