AAS at ARTicle

Currently in residence at ARTicle Gallery in Margaret Street School of Art, Brum, are the brilliant AAS

In their own words about The Receivers' Temple of The Eternal Drone...
Receivers were drawn by the Eternal Drone to a space on Margaret Street, Birmingham.
Through sacred listening, we are finding a series of instructions for how to use this place, to bring people together and to spread understanding of our principles.
The first protocol tells us to establish the Temple, so we placed sacred materials in the circle for a day to meditate upon them.
We focused on a warm part of the room that it led us to, and that seemed particularly full of the Drone. This seems initially suitable for private relaxation and opening of the Third Ear.
If you find the Receivers Temple of the Sacred Drone, do come in, take some time to open yourself up to the Drone, and let us know how you would like to use the space yourself.
We will be putting up some possibilities that we have already discovered, and of course, as always, let us know how you get on.
Our next priorities have been to make the Temple more comfortable and to spend time there. A supporter donated a sofa and some chairs, and we’ve been bringing in books and musical instruments.
We started making a list of more things to bring, and also noting down some of the discussions we had. Someone very helpfully added a poster after we mentioned we were after more things to put on the walls. If you stand in front of it and focus on the Eternal Drone, you can feel your Third Ear opening.
We’ve started to set challenges for existing and potential Receivers, inspired by things that the Drone calls us to do. We hope that other people will be called to set more challenges as well, to test the dedication of The Receivers and help us to grow.

 Loved the anonymous faceless bird.

Last week they created their own soundtrack to film Holy Mountain and it looked and sounded a little like this...

Hypnotised by colouring in whilst the film and AAS played - the time went so quickly and I loved it! Will be popping in again soon.
