The project has a time frame that starts from 2006 until today.  I experiment with stitching frames using Photoshop, writing using iPad Pro, and taking pictures of paintings in museums, television or magazines, as well as shooting from life.
The camera has a 128×128 pixel CMOS sensor, and can store 128×112, grayscale digital images using the 4-color palette of the Game Boy system.
The Game Boy Camera (GBC), released as Pocket Camera in Japan, is a Nintendo accessory for the handheld Game Boy game console. It was released on February 21, 1998, in Japan, and manufacturing was ceased in late 2002. As a toy for user-generated content, it can be used to shoot grayscale photographs, edit them or create original drawings, and transfer images between GBC units or to the 64DD art game suite Mario Artist. The accessory featured a 180°-swivel front-facing camera that allowed users to capture selfies. Its images can be printed to thermal paper with the Game Boy Printer.
This YouTube video  explains how to transfer images from the cartridge to a computer and many other curiosities.  The frame with the writing "Nintendo Game Boy" is an addition made with Photoshop as well as the green that reproduces the display of the first model of the portable console.  I love viewing framed photos because it kind of reminds me of the frame on medium format photos.
I gave the layout with a white background the same dimensions as the original game boy, i.e. 148 x 90mm in such a way as to give an experience similar to console viewing.  The project will then be printed at this original size on professional photographic paper.
