DESCRIPTION: One of the more technological of her generally low-tech videos, Whispering Confession depicts Rosenthal’s mouth whispering words about “things the mind makes the body do,” while onscreen text drops letter-by-letter a more specific confession about an extra-curricular student-faculty relationship pertaining to go-go dancing. Although it was created in VHS in 1999, it wasn’t exhibited, even when it was digitized in 2005. It finally was premiered at Rosenthal’s mini-retrospective in video at Berlin Directors Lounge, Z -Bar, in June 2009, and has been screened only rarely even since then.
