The Performance of Love is an art installation. It presents the LoverSeat, a product designed to provide love and replace the human being in the relationship. The installation is a small-scale house model. The audience peeks from behind the windows and sees the LoverSeat and hear its whisper. The Performance of Love questions the robot’s love which is programmed instead of spontaneous. The installation reveals an ironic truth: in the robot’s world. no one is special. This is a performance of love.
