*UPDATE* So… I have yet to hear word from FedEx on the status of my claim. I decided to call 1800-GO-FedEx and check up on my claim status. I supplied the representative with my claim number that was supplied to me. It turned up zero results in their system. They asked for the initial tracking number, to which I supplied, which also resulted in zilch. They do not have any of this on record? They asked for my name so they can do a search, buy the only thing to turn up was the first claim when the customer received the table with minor damages. I was transferred over to the guy who initially handled the first claim but he was not available so I left a message. What next?
Do not trust FedEx with your deliveries. I had shipped out a NES coffee table to someone who bought one, and upon receiving it, they ignored the “This side up” stickers and delivered it on it’s side. They also had stacked a large and very heavy box on top of it, tweaking the table inside. There were minor damages, some splitting and chipped paint. I had him ship the damaged table back to me and I got to work making him a new one.
Yesterday after class, my friend Luis and I went out to take some pictures around town. I ended up getting a call from a friend who has been trying to set up a photo shoot with me. So Luis and I decided to set up my strobes and get some shots done.
For my Photography as Contemporary Art class, we had to take an existing artist and take pictures inspired by them. I chose to do Uta Barth and her out of focus series of photos. I ended up sticking to LED signs with words because of the interesting geometric shapes they made.
