LA-based Walead Beshty conducted a 9-year experiment in which he shipped glass boxes to himself using FedEx, the aim of this was to create art by seeing how much the glass boxes would break during transit. The results are as interesting as they are impressive, each sculpture was named after the date, tracking number, and box size of the particular shipment. Check the final pieces out below.

We should just say, in all fairness to FedEx, if you ever want to ship a glass box, this is 100% not the right type of packaging you should be using, the boxes were shipped knowing and hoping that the glass would break.
