Bob Bicknell-Knight’s Larger-Than-Life “Loot Tick” Highlights Predatory Monetization Practices in Videogames

Bob Bicknell-Knight’s solo exhibition “Insert Coin” opens at CABLE DEPOT, London, debuting new works that explore predatory monetization practices within video games. “One of the most prevalent and destructive forms are loot boxes,” the British artist writes about purchasable in-game goodies that are now illegal in many countries. Bicknell-Knight presents one such specimen from the 2019 shooter Apex Legends as a larger-than-life 3D printed replica (image: The Loot Tick, 2023).
