There's a St. Peter's Basilica in Côte d'Ivoire and an Eiffel Tower in China—but do these large-scale replicas, erected far from home and lined with tourist dollars, herald a world of closed borders or rosy cultural exchange?

Description

A bus trap is installed in the middle of Stockholm. Intended to allow only buses to pass, the contraption totals hundreds of cars whose drivers ignore the warning signs and try to circumvent the obstacle. An amusing and telling record of how entitled, dangerous and stupid drivers can be, and how unresponsive people are to rules and change. Angie Driscoll
