In the Mind’s Eye!

There are marvelous and mysterious “things” that exist beyond human comprehension.

This short film explores the philosophical idea called solipsism. Solipsism.  Whether you ascribe to the idea that nothing exists outside your own mind it’s worth watching the beautiful visuals.  (I liked watching how it was made before watching the actual film.  Either way you watch, it’s fascinating and visually wonderful.)

How the video was made

 

Here’s the finished video

“SOLIPSIST is an experimental short film by Andrew Huang that won the Special Jury Prize at Slamdance 2012. 

“Solipsism (Listeni/ˈsɒlɨpsɪzəm/; from Latin solus, meaning “alone”, and ipse, meaning “self”)[1] is the philosophical idea that only one’s own mind is sure to exist. As an epistemological position, solipsism holds that knowledge of anything outside one’s own mind is unsure; the external world and other minds cannot be known, and might not exist outside the mind. As a metaphysical position, solipsism goes further to the conclusion that the world and other minds do not exist”. (Wikipedia)

  1. Biozarre (a new word?), otherworldly, curious, allegorical, creation/destruction/deconstruction/reconstruction and very cool! The countering of beings, art, graphics, computers and creative use of multiple media was fun to contemplate.
