Today, most goods are a click away. We get online and are able to purchase almost anything, at the cheapest price, and have it delivered in no time. Thanks to Amazon, FedEx, UPS, and others, we can have all kinds of goods, even drugs and guns, delivered to our doorstep. These companies have grown so much, and are so big, that they can operate without consideration for their detractors. The convenience they give us allows us to forget our values. We don’t want to investigate who really makes the products we buy, what these delivery companies stand for, and what political views they may hold. If we can get what we want, in the time we want, at a reasonable price, we are okay with closing one eye, or even both.
Carlo’s new body of work is made using reclaimed packaging from various delivery companies. With the use of a rotary tool, Carlo has created several images on each of this boxes. Each piece is a visual representation of a controversy associated with these companies. The scope of this new work is to ask the viewer to look behind the scenes of our consumeristic convenience.
