Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, I can’t remember a time I didn’t need you, 2020, interactive game. 
Nominated and co-commissioned by Peter Bonnell, QUAD Derby, UK.

We recommend that the game is played on desktop or laptops, rather than mobile phones.

A fog has overtaken a city. Everyone who was in the city has now changed. Word spreads that this fog can support life that isn’t supported on earth. You are going to see if the fog will support your life or if you are the reason the fog has come.

Brathwaite-Shirley (UK) is an artist working predominantly in animation, sound, performance and video games to communicate the experiences of being a Black Trans person. Spurred on by a desire to record the “history of Trans people both living and past” their work can often be seen as a Trans archive where Black Trans people are stored for the future.

Co-commissioned by QUAD, Derby in collaboration with Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Open Eye Gallery and University of Salford Art Collection on the occasion of Peer to Peer: UK/HK Online Festival 2020
