Woman destroys RM857,900 of art in selfie mishap

CCTV images show the woman bumping into some of the displays as she poses for her own photograph on her camera.

A woman visiting Simon Birch's art installation The 14th Factory in Los Angeles has pretty much lived out our worst art-related nightmares (besides being cast in plaster to look as if our frozen body was a statue, but we'll leave that one aside for now). A woman while taking a selfie in an art exhibition fell against one of the towers propping up the valuable art pieces, creating a domino effect, which leads other towers to fall as well.

The 14th Factory, which would not divulge whether the pieces were insured, told technology site Cnet that it was not behind the emergence of the video. She accidentally leaned on it and the rest is history...

Taking selfies is an art, but as it turns out, sometimes it can, let's say, cause a lot of damage.

The incident at The 14th Factory featured the work of renowned artist Simon Birch.

Birch created the exhibit with the help of 16 interdisciplinary artists from China, Hong Kong, the USA, the United Kingdom, and Canada, according to arts website Design Milk.

It was said that Birch's project took him nearly six years to finish and was supposed to be held in Hong Kong before he settled in an empty warehouse downtown in Los Angeles.

"Think about the storylines of Star Wars or Harry Potter and the monumental scenes that define the movies".

He was given six months to live which forced him to re-evaluate his life.
