By the combination of organic form and the geometric atom of the computer pixel, this fashion piece is half garment, half retro gaming hardware on the human scale. Through body modification ( such as directional pad and A/B button implants and circuit board tattoos) as well as Gameboy hardware, the organic human figure and pixel come together.
The garment would be separated into 4 LED maps that would receive graphical input from modified Gameboy hardware. Attachments and accessories are created from respective link cables. The head piece includes a Gameboy Camera, allowing the audience to see themselves as the human/ Gameboy hybrid form would.
