Pink Laser Beam is the 6th Compendium of the experimental online periodical www.thisisamagazine.com containing over 180 pages of paper (and plastic) featuring new works from in and around the internet which unfold in time and space.
The title Pink Laser Beam is a reference to the moment of exegesis in Philip K. Dick's final novel "Valis" where a beam of pink light, after travelling to earth across the cosmos, suddenly and without warning enters the narrator's brain. The compendium attempts to present activities and artworks which have the potential to circumnavigate our traditional modes of perception.
A new book of netart and the likes? Elaborate publishing-prank? Giant cosmic puzzle?
