Brandon

Shu Lea Cheang’s BRANDON from 1998-99 is a recently conserved interactive journey that both reconstitutes and speculates upon an ‘all American’ road trip and is inspired by the tragic true story of Brandon Teena, a trans* teenager who was raped and murdered after being ‘outed’. Brandon is a multifaceted web project that uses the nonlinear and participatory nature of the Internet as a means to explore and illuminate Brandon Teena’s tragic story.
