Mike Leavitt creates interactive sculptures of contemporary artists using polymer clay and mixed media, with hidden features built into some of the figures. We love his model of Lost At E Minor contributor Ron English, and his characterization of the ever mysterious Banksy.
We’ve been featuring some interesting guest contributors on Lost At E Minor over the past year, including Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Tristan Eaton, Ben Lee, Brendan Canning from Broken Social Scene, designer Deanne Cheuk, artist Sam Weber, singer-songwriter Laura Veirs, and Tegan from Tegan and Sara.
Previous Guest Editor of Lost At E Minor, Shepard Fairey, and Jennifer Gross have a fantastic new book out through Abrams entitled, Art For Obama. Featuring artwork from more than a hundred International artists, including fellow Lost At E Minor Guest Editor Ron English [illustration above], Lukas Ketner, Kwaku Alston, Maya Hayuk, and Lisa Anne Auerbach, many of the works were created before the election to raise money for the Obama campaign. Pieces range from fashion to installation, and most refer back to Obama’s likeness. This will be a great book to look back on many years from now. And it’s a guilt free purchase, as all of the authors’ proceeds will be donated to Americans for the Arts charity.
In the midst of a neo-contemporary art movement muddled with carbon copy exhibitions and copycat galleries from all over the globe, artists and musicians assemble in a space in East London’s Hoxton district to showcase art, make music, and create whatever the hell they want.

Nicknamed the ‘grandmother of performance art’, Marina Abramović is unlike any other artist in the world today. She has pushed boundaries (and usually broken them), explored relationships to their core, and even allowed the public to harm her – all in the name of art. Now Tasmania is welcoming a new exhibition that explores the artistic wonder that is Abramović.

Every traveller has been made angry or helpless due to a flight delay. At the time you were more than likely tired, hungover, or an unhappy combination of the two, and you may or may not have got out your annoyed voice.
Ever wondered how long that meal you’ve been given on a flight has been sitting in the galley? On a recent tour of the Emirates catering facility in Dubai I unearthed some interesting facts about what they’re doing to try and remove the stigma of ‘plane food’.
I had the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the Emirates Cabin Crew training facility in Dubai (yes, you hate me, I get it) and I discovered some pretty interesting facts about the training these ladies and lads have to go through to get you that next bourbon and Coke.
