"March 18, 1974: It, from inside me, looked out and saw the world did not compute, that I - and it - had been lied to. It denied the reality, and power, and authenticity of the world, saying, 'This cannot exist; it cannot exist.'" Philip K. Dick, Exegesis

In March 1974 Philip K. Dick experienced his epiphany, an encounter with a higher intelligence he termed VALIS. PKD devoted the remaining years of his life to understand the implications of this encounter - evident in his Valis-Trilogy as well as in his unpublished 8000 page 'exegesis'.

XDV wants to take the 30th anniversary of this event as a starting point for Pink Light, an online and offline exhibition project focusing on the work and life of Philip K. Dick – thereby exploring central themes of his novels as well as his VALIS experience.

The online part of the exhibition - to be hosted on - is meant as a site for web-based artwork inspired by or related to PKD. It is also intended to be a knowledge base for all kinds of cultural emanations connected to PKD's work realized within an open, twiki-based framework.

The offline part of the exhibition will take place in March 2004 in Vienna, Austria, and will be showcasing the web-based works along with installations, documentation and lectures on PKD, his work and the philosophical background of his metaphysical experiences.

XDV is looking for artistic contributions to "Pink Light" in the following formats:

  • Online Pieces to be hosted on
  • Physical installations or installation proposals intended for realization at the exhibition
  • Video or computer based works

Submitted artworks and proposals should be related either to the work of Philip K. Dick or to themes discussed in his novels (such as, but not limited to, totalitarian societies, perception of distorted realities, the question of what distinguishes man from his creations) or the subject of PKD’s epiphany itself (gnosis,...)

Works/work documentation/concepts should be submitted to prior to January 31, 2004. All submissions should include a short description of the work and a short biography either in English or German.

All submitted works will be reviewed by a board of XDV members including representatives of farmersmanual, epy and fuckhead for their suitability in the exhibition. XDV intends to invite the creators of the most interesting pieces to present their work in the exhibition, the number of invitations will depend on the allocation of funding.
