2003 | Three-Channel Gameboy Advance Installation

Super Ichthyologist Advance

This project is inspired by the "gotta catch them all!" mantra which fuels the fanaticism of capturing Pokemon. In this installation of flexible dimensions, I have converted Nintendo's Gameboy Advance handheld system into a virtual repository for show quality Koi. The fish are trapped within the devices: a much smaller tank, but more effective method for distributing ownership of these regal animals.
