LEGO Love is in the Bin model

LEGO Love is in the Bin model


Recreate a piece of contemporary art history with this LEGO Boost-powered creation, which replicates the Banksy piece “Love is in the Bin” with an ingenious tractor mechanism.



Every holiday, I set a challenge for my club students to do over the break.

In the half term break of the final term of 2022 the students were asked to pick a work of art and recreate it from LEGO, then add some electronics and make it come alive.

All the entries for this challenge were so good and so intriguing that many students wanted to see for themselves how they were made and try and make them at home themselves. I decided to make this possible by creating the instructions for the models and agreed with the parents of the children that I would sell them on the site and give half the profits to the children so that they could profit from their inventions.

This one is by E & M C, who recreated the Banksy artwork “Love is in the Bin. Powered by a LEGO Boost hub and incorporating some classic LEGO roof pieces, this makes ingenious use of perspective to recreate a classic moment in contemporary art history.

To make the model you will need one LEGO Boost kit and other pieces.

Please note, the instructions were designed to replicate the original model as closely as possible rather than to use the most efficient and common configuration of pieces, so you will likely not have all the pieces in the model, but should look to make appropriate substitutions where necessary.
