Someone took the selfie bait at 14th Factory in Los Angeles.
A visitor to the pop-gallery couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a photo with artwork by Simon Birch, a British multimedia artist based in Hong Kong. Birch’s show, “Hypercaine,” is a series of crowns on pedestals that are close to each other. The damage is estimated at $200,000.
In the video — where others are also taking selfies — you can see the visitor stumbling and causing a domino effect of sorts. Though the damage is significant, Birch told the NY Times he would not be putting signs up asking people to be careful.
