Landmarks That Have Been Destroyed By Tourists

Toddler Tantrum


CCTV video caught one of the most disturbing acts of vandalism when it captured two young boys pulling apart an installation piece by Shelly Xue titled “Angel is Waiting.” Instead of reprimanding their unruly children, both parents took out their cellphones and began recording the incident. The piece, which took 27 months to create, was so heavily damaged that instead of rebuilding it, Xue decided to let it remain in its ruined state and renamed the piece “Broken.” The revamped installation at the Shanghai Museum of Glass is accompanied by a screen that plays the footage on loop.
