The "Err" Art Project: You’re Doing It Wrong

Jeremy Hutchison had an idea: get companies to make products that don’t work. “I asked them to make me one of their products, but to make it with an error,” Hutchison explains. “I specified that this error should render the object dysfunctional. And rather than my choosing the error, I wanted the factory worker who made it to choose what error to make. Whatever this worker chose to do, I would accept and pay for.”

Hutchison’s collection of these useless products, called Err, will be on display in London beginning July 8. Check out more information about the project (along with lots more pictures) on Creative Review. Link
