The Love Lives Bot is a tiny Twitter-based robot that tracks & shares past, present, & future locations where love resides. Part pixel & part poetry, the Love Lives Bot is a digital art installation built by Topaz Winters using generative grammar that spins computer code into the odd, the tragic, & the beautiful. The bot dances on the boundary between programming & human language, learns from its mistakes, & incorporates DM'ed & replied suggestions from readers into its future tweets. All those yearning for love need search no more. She's right here. She's awake. She's waiting for you with open arms.

"Looking for love in all the strange places. Topaz Winters' Love Lives Bot is a slippery hand to grip for amorous flings behind belfries, boiler rooms and pressure cookers. A sweet, romantic machine." —Thomas McMullen, creator of the British Gardens bot

“In a landscape where the line between virtual and actual often ceases to exist, and where intimacy is an increasingly digital endeavour, the Love Lives Bot is a pioneer. It mirrors love in its ability to be simultaneously comforting and disorienting. It is limitless, as cyberspace is limitless. The Love Lives Bot is validating and true, just as both love and the Internet should be.” —Bronwen Brenner, writer

"Topaz Winters's Love Lives Bot is nothing short of a mixture of surprise & tenderness. Every time @lovelivesbot tweets, I am reminded of the beauty & love that hides everywhere in the world. I await updates from this precious bot when I'm feeling down because I know it always brings me a little hope. A couple of my favorites, or the ones that touched me the most, in every delightful way: where is love? from time to time, astride a piano heart; &: looking for love? i hear this morning she's after gossip. So if you were wondering where love resides at the moment? It most definitely is in @lovelivesbot." —Caroline Grand-Clement, writer & creator of the Things Are Poetry bot

"Bless @lovelivesbot. I didn't know I needed this account in my life but I clearly did, because I felt my heart expand a bit more." —Margaryta Golovchenko, author of Pastries and Other Things History Has Tried to Choke Us With Miso Mermaid
