Woman’s Selfie Fall At Exhibit Causes $200K In Damage

A woman accidentally knocked over part of an art exhibit in Los Angeles two weeks ago causing an estimated $200,000 worth of damage. This is what the installation, called “Hypercaine,” looked like before the accident.

She lost her balance and tripped backwards, causing the first pedestal to topple, and consequently, making others in line behind go bam!

Wait for it.0:11 is when the action happens. This took place at my mate Simon Birch’s art installation The 14th Factory in Los Angeles, when a lady tried to crouch down and pose in front of a pillar holding a sculpture to take a picture.


She accidentally leant on it and the rest is history… $200,000 worth of art destroyed! The room contains 60 crown-formed sculptures and is titled ‘Hypercaine’. The rest of The 14th Factory is one of its kind.

“Crowns are fragile things. They are symbols of power. Perhaps it’s ironic and meaningful that they fell.”Selfies are still allowed, but make sure your footing is a bit more secure than previous visitors.
