SOLIPSIST – Andrew Thomas Huang
When musical artists like Bjork or Sigur Ros, who are well-known for their emotionally expressive and imaginative music videos, handpicked someone to visualize one of their songs, you kind of know that this someone is going to be quite special.
Enter Andrew Thomas Huang. A former student of the University of Southern California with a degree in Fine Art and Animation, he is a filmmaker and artist living in Los Angeles, where his work has been showcased at the Museum of Contemporary Art. But he is not only appreciated in the US, he also showed at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase at Cannes Lions, the Hammer Museum, MOCA Taipei, ZKM Media Museum and ASVOFF at the Centre Pompidou. Also Andrew Huang’s art has gotten widespread attention through magazines like DAZED&CONFUSED, Paper Magazine, The Atlantic, Motionographer, SIGGRAPH’s Electronic Theater, and Creativity Magazine’s „Directors to Watch.“
By directing the video for Bjork’s „Mutual Core“ from the album “Biophilia” he has most certainly created one of the most extraordinary videos of 2012. And he continued this track record in 2013 with the equally stunning, but maybe darker video for Sigur Ros “Brennisteinn”. But the area of music is not the only one he delves into, since he continues to explore into advertising, feature film and more personal projects.
His website http://www.andrewthomashuang.com displays very interesting material of both his film work and installations and offers several music videos, his artful short ‘Solipsist’ and – maybe even more interesting – making of-videos that shed light on his process of creation.
