Intuition Kitchen Productions, by artist Mike Leavitt, is a one-man company making an amazing variety of indefinable projects between conceptual art and lowbrow product, from intricate miniatures to industrial-grade objects. His latest project, Don't Stop Object Shopping consists of expensive product replicas made of cheap, disposable material like cardboard, similar to the manufacture of boutique footwear. His cardboard shoes suggest that commercial viability is now an urgent reality.
Traditionally distasteful and modest objects consciously designed for commerce accommodate the current economy in ways modern art may never know. Regardless of the politics behind the pieces, his work is a sigh to behold!
