This point gets raised in the experience economy of tourism through DePaul University professor Susan Giles' "Glitches, Hitches and Hiccups."A variation on the standard tourist video, her visit to the Parthenon has been whittled down to the "accidental" frames that she shot on her visit, the swift turns of the lens or long, unconscious pans of the sidewalk.
