SOLIPSIST by Andrew Huang is a Visual and Philosophical Treat

SOLIPSIST is an experimental short film by Andrew Huang that recently won the Special Jury Prize at Slamdance 2012. This short film by Andrew explores the philosophical idea called solipsism. Solipsism, to summarize, is the concept that we can only be sure of what exists in our mind.

This is one of the most interesting and creative videos we’ve seen in a while. It also fits nicely into our credo of “inspiring others to create.” Enjoy and let Andrew Huang take you on a visual and philosophical journey!

    I am the founder of the Uncovered Artistry Project ( We strive to empower domestic and sexual abuse survivors through the power of art and entrepreneurship by operating an online boutique that sells the art and fine crafts of these men and women. I ran across your blog and I found the content relevant to our mission.

    This April, we are hosting “An Art Show to End Abuse,” and we are trying to raise money for the show through Kickstarter ( ). I was wondering if you would be interested in supporting our cause by posting a short post about the Project and our upcoming art show. I can provide you with the content and pictures or you can write your own content.

    In return, I would be happy to feature your blog on our blog as well (

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Certainly very colorful,impressive and inventive, but somehow it left me feeling empty…. a little bit like seeing “narcissistic fireworks”…

    Perhaps I was reading in to something that wasn’t intended… but it felt like it was representation of the organic way in which a relationship forms, the experiences which colour each other, becoming what feels like a tangible part of both people, steadily growing, sometimes strange and bizarre, but beautiful all the same, and how this sometimes becomes all encompassing yet welcome; a peaceful surrender to the gradual blending of two souls. Eventually the dance is over, and we are asked how we feel about this loss of individuality – is this death or a new shared life?

    I know that’s not exactly what the piece was intended to be about… but that’s what I got from it, and I found it quite moving.
