Misplaced Reliquary

by Paul Catanese

Misplaced Reliquary is a handheld curiosity cabinet of relics collected by an eccentric curator. The relics are contained within a virtual repository taking the form of a gameboy advance ROM that can be "played" online or downloaded to any gameboy advance (with the correct transfer hardware). An artist's edition of five game cartridges has also been created.
