In their crowded offices, these underpaid gamers perform repetitive in-game actions for hours on end, collecting currency and points for characters that are then sold to American and European gamers via eBay. Accompanied by a manifesto from these politically contentious artists, the piece is a timely and relevant comment on the post-credit crunch world.
