A woman attending the “Hypercaine” installation at the 14th Factory in Los Angeles, California accidentally knocked over a row of Simon Birch luxurious artwork. A whole lane of crown installations went down like a domino and the young lady would’ve probably passed out after learning how much she destroyed just for wanting to take a selfie!

A security footage of the incident was released recently. On the ten second mark, a woman at the upper right was trying to crouch down, probably to make it look like she’s wearing one of the crowns in her selfie. While she was posing to take an Instagram-worthy snap, she lost her balance and everything just went wrong.

Crown sculptures were displayed at The 14th Factory for the Hypercaine.

The crowns that sat on pedestals toppled down and, according to the exhibition spokesperson, three of the sculptures where totally broken into pieces. The rest of the twelve artworks did not have permanent damages but were shattered to some degree.

The affected art were works of the famous Hong Kong-based British artist Simon Birch. The total damage caused by the woman’s clumsy selfie reached to a whopping $200,000 which, well, she could have used to buy herself a brand new Lamborghini.

However, the incident is being questioned as some people are guessing that it was just a PR stunt. The footage was released to prove that the event really took place and that it was unintentional. A spokesperson of the artwork exhibition told NY Post:

“There has been speculation whether this really happened or is a PR stunt. The truth is, the event did happen and it was caught on our security camera.”


Simon Birch’s masterpieces stood beside the artworks of fellow artists Gabriel Chan, Jacob Blizter and Gloria Yu. The crown sculptures were made from brass, gold plate, marble, metal, nylon, stone and wood.

The Hypercaine installation displayed a number of luxurious crowns and headgear sculptures by prominent artists.

Despite the hefty sum of damages, The 14th Factory has no intentions of suing the woman whom they found out was just a student.

In today’s modern world, one does not need to be an expert to achieve something. Almost everything has been made easy. Well, this is thanks to the present technology and the people who continue to advance it.

The same notion can be applied in photography and everything that comes with it. But alas, gone are the days when one has to go through the eye of a needle just to capture a moment. Now, a simple snap from a camera – most especially mobile phones – is enough to take a picture and make it look stunning.

Case in point, panorama is a photography technique that people are fond of using nowadays. From picturing their pets to taking selfies, it can be used on almost everything. But as they say, technology can also be the biggest party pooper in a human being’s life. And yes, this is exactly what these people (and animals) below experienced.

Instead of taking the law into his own hands, he just used his lawnmower to write a special message!

Even if you feel you’ve been wronged by someone, it’s never right to take the law into your own hands. It is, however, possibly okay if you vent out your anger using the lawnmower instead – like what this guy did!

Apparently, one man from the state of Washington took his feud with his neighbor to a hilarious level. He used his lawnmower to write a message that, strangely, can only be seen via Google Maps.

In a report by the DailyMail, we learn that “Brian Juel and his neighbors Cindy and Brian Zechenelly have not seen eye-to-eye in years.” The root cause of the ill feelings, as it appears, were “over the fact Zechenelly built a large garage apartment on her property in Sequim and painted the entire thing purple in April 2009.”
