The 14th Factory art installation, from Hong Kong-based British artist Simon Birch, was described by the Los Angeles Times as "a series of wondrous, over-the-top sets for the perfect selfie".

Little did they know that someone's attempt at taking a selfie would lead to $200,000-worth of damage.

A YouTube user, who claims to be a mate of Birch, uploaded some CCTV footage of a woman in the Hypercaine installation trying to get a picture while crouching, and ending up knocking over a bunch of art pieces as if they were dominoes.

The Los Angeles-based gallery consists of 14 separate installations in a disused warehouse, with the Hypercaine segment being based on a song by DJ Fresh, of all people.

If you're in the LA area, you can visit The 14th Factory until the end of July, but it's closed Monday and Tuesday.
