Minecraft is a “first person” videogame in which the player roams freely in a vast three- dimensional environment. The player “mines” the landscape in search of materials to create structures. During this effort, the surroundings alter. For the most part the world of Minecraft is constructed from brick-units of different “materials” which can be used by the player. “Minecrafted Waste Land” is attempting a comparison and correlation of a game review, by youtuber “Tai”, a radio speech of Michel Foucault on the concept of heterotopia and a typed page from Richard Wright’s “Native Son” with handwritten corrections by the author.
