Game Boy Bricks (2006)

The Game Boy classic has the shape of a brick, and is quite heavy, that’s why Game Boy musicians often call it “the brick”. This snowballed the artist into making real Game Boy bricks. The bricks also exist to preserve the Game Boy as an object for a longer time than the plastics will last. In the future all information might be lost on what a Game Boy is, so then people can still see the Game Boy and wonder what it was used for. This is why Gijs Gieskes buried Game Boys: as a symbol of what archeologists might find in the future.
