Project of the Week | FedEx Works

Being the postal services no. 1 fans, this project by Walaed Beshty really caught our eye. Walead creates

shattered sculptures from shipping glass cubes within FedEx packaging.

The series spanning from 2005 to 2014 saw Walaed ship his hand built glass works to galleries and exhibitions across the globe,

but unlike any other artist he was hoping that they would break en route.

“I wanted to make a work that was specifically organised around its traffic, becoming materially manifest through its movement from one place to another”.
