Farm - in video games, the routine collection of large amounts of resources.

Many players spend in online games thousands of hours collecting resources and crafting a virtual items. With support for user modifications, games-sandboxes (acting as a platform) have successfully transformed labor into a game, creating a strong symbiosis between users and platform.

To create this work, I used a digital stump found in Minecraft and replaced the regular iron axe with its enchanted version.

Special thanks to Margarita Mayorova for help in production.
