For Bestival on the Isle of Wight this year, Shipshape Arts designed and built the Love-Bot. A 7m tall colossus that towered above the crowd. The story was as follows:
"The Lovebot needs love for his energy, without it he rests in limbo - full of angst and worry, with his joints gradually rusting together and his internal batteries slowly running down... all he needs to come alive is someone to show him some love!"
He had animated eyes, lights, turning key and smoke from his ears. The more love he was shown, the more animated he became!
