Odd and Disturbing, yet so Beautiful

Solipsist Art Film

Once in a while I come across things that have a surprising effect on me, like the Solipsist, a visually stunning experimental short film by Andrew Thomas Huang. 

After watching the video, I felt inspired, amused, and slightly disturbed. Those things crawling over girls faces were pretty awful and I still have guy's odd painted face/canvas stuck in my head.

The movie is incredibly odd and disturbing, yet so beautiful.

At the end, I felt like I want to pick up my paint brush and paint something crazy colorful. 

To me this is a definition of ART - something that moves you, that invokes strong feelings and leaves a lasting impression on you.

I didn't see the actual film, just a preview that you can see below, but you can see why this film won the Special Jury Prize for the experimental short film at the Slamdance Festival this year.

Have you had similar experience with anything before? What do you draw inspiration from? 
Watch the movie preview below and tell me what you fell after watching it.

The photography in this is absolutely amazing! The work that went into this is astounding, and of course the color and the texture used are so creatively inspiring. At times I was sure I was watching an undersea adventure, other times it was yet another part of nature...but it is all very inspiring...and serene.
