Barbara Rosenthal

Rules (2010) DVD NTSC, b/w, 3 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: philosophical

Audio segments by Brandstifter. Languages: ENGLISH and TRANSLATED GERMAN, both simple, as on-screen text. "RULES" is an text-animation in black and white, with startling, disturbing electronic sound cut in sync with rapidly moving statements that make us realize the many shades of meaning even simple words can have. While considering the parameters of a real-life relationship supposedly founded on the principles of freedom and liberty, the artist discovered many barriers, restrictions, limitations, guidelines, and pillars, which, if disturbed, might cause a great quake. Suddenly, while contemplating this phenomenon, and realizing that such was the nature of just about everything, this video was born. Premiered at Rosenthal's solo screening, "Existential Word Play", at Berlin Lettretage, Feb. 2010.
