Ubik is a 1969 science fiction novel by American writer Philip K. Dick. The story is set in a future 1992 where psychic powers are common and utilized in corporate espionage, while intricate technologies allow recently deceased people to be mantained in a lengthy state of hybernation. It follows Joe Chip, a technician at a psychic agency who after an assassination attempt begins to experience strange alterations in reality that can be temporarily reversed by a mysterious store-bought substance called Ubik.
Ubik is a metaphor for God. Ubik is all-powerful and all-knowing, and Ubik is everywhere. The spray can is only a form that Ubik takes to make it easy for people to understand it and use it. It is not the substance inside the can that helps them, but rather their faith in the promise that it will help them.
Ubik is the award-winning concoction of Ste Dalton & Nick Losse. Their unique take on mixed-media film-making has taken them all around the globe making films for a wide range of clients and causes.
