Cultured Pallets

Soheila Esfahani | Facebook

Sohelia Esfahani invites the public to create their own stencils and decorate shipping pallets using various designs. In her installations, Esfahani often incorporates decorated shipping pallets, which metaphorically serve as objects of holding. These pallets are ready to move in-between and cross boundaries of places and cultures by being in a state of permanent transit. Cultured Pallets series are transient installations which grow out of Esfahani’s ongoing process of marking shipping pallets with an email address ( and a variety of collected motifs and designs. The cultured pallets are then sent back into circulation.
