Non-playable Latin American game characters (NPCs) work in endless loops alongside propagandistic advertisements for cheap Mexican labor. “Cosecha mecánica” (“Mechanical Harvest”) juxtaposes the U.S. propaganda film WHY BRACEROS? (1962), contemporary sound recordings, and background characters from a modified video game side by side to visually examine how labor is reshaped and its value redefined to serve our consumerist needs.
