Group: Minecraft Players
Definition: People who play Minecraft (on any computer platform) who live in Bath.
Reasons for selecting: Minecraft is an indie computer game that has picked up a worldwide following since it was released in 2009. Alongside exploration, gathering resources and combat, avid players of the game will devote many hours to building elaborate constructions and environments within its blocky 3D computer generated world. We are impressed by the level of dedication and skill displayed by so many players and would like to provide an opportunity for people who share this passion to meet offline.
As part of their project ‘Picture in the Paper’, artists LOW PROFILE searched for all of the people in Bath who play Minecraft, bringing them together to make a professional photographic portrait of as many people in this group as possible.
