The animation „reality island is elsewhere“ is about a humanoid protagonist named Rose who is in search of „her“ personal reality. A game, reminiscent of earlier TV shows, forms the narrative framework of this work. Against this backdrop the troubled and sensitive character Rose attempts, with the help of her avatar Tessa, to experience her body and various spaces in a performative way and to reflect her subjective reality within this game. Personal thoughts and memories of the character Rose flow, overlapping each other, into the storyline and determine the rhythm of the animation.
