Game Boy Camera photography
One of my two primary reasons for being there was to take pictures using my Game Boy Camera. Despite it being a piece of kit that’s 15 years old, the camera was quite a hit, with over 60 people lining up to have their portrait taken in four shades of grey and printed out onto a one-inch sticker.
There are, of course numerous phone apps for Android and iPhone that aim to reproduce the 8 Bit aesthetic of the Game Boy Camera, but nothing can be better than the real thing! To transfer the photos I was using this method, which worked flawlessly! There was a 10 minute wait whilst I developed the film transferred the pictures, but this was still much faster than using the Mad Catz Camera Link cable.

As usual, I took to the VJ deck whilst they kicked out the jams. Here’s a sample of the output
This was created using video synthesis in Pure Data. There’ll be more talk of that in a later blog post.
It was a shame that I missed most of the talks, but I was otherwise glad to be part of such a successful event! Thanks to Ludic Rooms for inviting me over!
