Robert Prideaux presents a series of videos from his new project Donkey Island.

A landscape is transformed through the medium of film... it is no longer the same place. But in its stead, a highly believable, unreal landscape is created. There are no limitations as to what can occur in this new landscape.

Donkey Island is just such a place. Prideaux has filmed an old quarry in Bristol whose heavy industrial past  has shaped the evolution of its topography. Playing with time, place, camera movement, and his own presence within the moving-image-screen,  Prideaux fabricates his own history of this new place.

By adjusting and tweaking the "truth" of the site of filming, how "real" or "unreal" something is on Donkey Island becomes unclear.

Prideaux runs around, stumbles through and explores this new terrain, challenging his and our relation to the highly believable yet unreal world inside the moving-image-screen.
