It's Been Too Long
Monday 22nd June 2009

So many commitments have gotten in the way of this project that I cannot really keep a separate blog for this project here. A blog has been set up called Bruce Rimell : Art & Sketches which now contains the latest enws and updates about the whole of my artistic practice, including this project.

On the plus side, the work in progress shown below (the epiphany of the salvia spirit in twisting form) has been finished and is now visible on the blog here.

Hiatus
Sunday 19th October 2008

Due to other artistic commitments and projects starting up, the :: salviaspace :: project is in hiatus until the New Year. All the other things are evry rewarding but they are leaving me little time to explore salvic spaces...

Work In Progress
Mon 29th September 2008

A new image of the epiphany of the salvia spirit in multiple, space-twisting form. As yet, only the sketch and a single colour have been added...

Prints Available in Shop
Wed 3rd September 2008

High quality A3 Art Prints are now available in the Shop priced at £25 each including postage and packing.

Pipiltzin
Friday 25th July 2008

The first image of a second video poem, entitled Pipiltzin which is intended to explore the salvia sexual dimension. A gallery of images was on the previous site of :: salviaspace :: but I feel this seldom-spoken-about aspect is worth exploring as part of the territory of the plant...

Bridge Of Tea
Friday 25th July 2008

A new large format work, which continues the Bridges series begun in 2006. This explores the bridge to salviaspace via the medium of tea, which tends to engender few visionary aspects but is an excellent aid to stillness and deep meditation. It will be uploaded fully in due course. A limited edition print will soon become available.

Envaginate
Monday 21st July 2008

A new animated short film is now uploaded in the Film section, inspired by the sense of maternal warmth during a salvia journey. It takes the form of a video poem and is expected to be the first in a series using imagery from other aspects of the :: salviaspace :: project.


New Site Uploaded
Saturday 19th July 2008

The new site is now online. Updates to follow will include the animation for Space Training/Portals Inwards, more planned texts in the Words section and a selection of slideshows in the Film section, the first one to be called Envaginate...

Sage Spirit - Another new(ish) book release
Thursday 17th July 2008

Another salvia-inspired book I have just ordered is Sage Spirit - Salvia Divinorum and the Entheogenic Experience. Daniel Siebert (website here) reports on Amazon that it contains much sage wisdom, a fine recommendation from one of the leaders in salvia divinorum reseach worldwide. Daniel Siebert's long-awaited book Divine Sage doesn't seem near to publication as yet...

Peopled Darkness
Thursday 17h July 2008

I've just bought Peopled Darkness - A Perceptual Transformation through Salvia Divinorum by J.D. Arthur from Amazon. I think it's a fairly new release, or at least I've only just noticed it. Essentially it documents his transfromation at the hands of La Maria from everyday folk to 'thoughtless awareness' and an intriguing inner landscape. I started reading it a few days ago and first impressions are quite good. The author is from New England (the area in the US, not the Old England I'm from...) and he's got quite a philosophical and descriptive angle on the besagement process - certainly some of his descriptions really chimed with me, and as an artist with a fairly clumsy approach to prose I admire his concise work here.

New Salviaspace Site Soon
Tuesday 15th July 2008

Well I'm just about to head off for a relaxing holiday in southern Crete to enjoy the sun, hill walking and wandering around Minoan sites and secluded beaches, but before I go I will upload the new :: salviaspace :: site, which includes a whole set of new galleries, some old animated short films going back to 2006 and a clearer presentation of the intended book which is the ultimate goal of this project. It also includes this blog.

Despite uploading the site now I intend to promote it when I get back from Crete. It's no use promoting something when you're not around to answer emails about it from interested (and interesting!) folks...
