These kind of manufacturing mistakes happen all the time and for some reason it’s kind of fascinating which is why Heike Bollig’s ongoing project, Errors in Production, is such an intriguing cavalcade of manufacturing misfortune. Since 2004, Heike has been cataloguing a variety of products from beer bottles to tortellini that in some way have suffered during production such as a multiple labels, a malformed shape or packaging with no product at all.
