The Pollocks art collective recently opened a temporary shop named Worthless that played with notions of consumerism and the perceived value of material objects. Participants brought in a variety of random objects to the London store that would usually be considered junk, everything from old hard drives to tattered shoes. The team at Worthless then set to work customizing all the cast-off goods into unique pieces of art. Customers were then able to buy back their submitted items for whatever the felt they were worth. Jotta has made a video about the project – watch it below.
