1. A broken phone is inevitable and annoying. It also leads to a worrying lack of detail and clarity when it comes to the events of the past month.
Walead Beshty's 'FedEx' takes advantage of this inevitability - using the limitations of his chosen materials to his benefit.
The FedEx series sees Beshty ship glass cubes of varying sizes directly to his gallery, with the resulting damage - the cracks and chips - creating the work. The work reveals itself through a process of movement, starting as one thing and becoming something else. Presented on top of its container, no explanation is necessary; Beshty's sculptures reveal themselves in a neat and succinct way.
