Build the Love You Deserve is a performance series centered on the semi-fictional relationship between the artist and her do-it-yourself robotic boyfriend, Gabriel2052. Based on the artist’s growing infatuation with a non-humanoid robot, the performance highlights the emotional, societal, and technical hurdles she must overcome to actualize their love. Could the organic and fickle language of love truly be spoken between human and machine? The artist posits that we should try to engage in such a translation—that perhaps the end goal isn't just to find a replacement, but a better understanding of ourselves.
