Description (in English): 

A one-year narrative project in installments commissioned by the Guggenheim, Brandon explores issues of gender fusion and techno-body in both public space and cyberspace. Brandon derives its title from Brandon/Teena Brandon of Nebraska, USA, a gender-crossing individual who was raped and murdered in 1993 after his female anatomy was revealed. Brandon deploys Brandon into cyberspace through multi-layered narratives and images whose trajectory leads to issues of crime and punishment in the cross-section between real space and virtual space.
