St. John's Tide; How about Making Devotional Art?

This is a spiritual rebirth, an opening up to allow something higher, purer, holy, light, life and power to enter one, not from below, but from above.

I find these images of installation and performance art pieces by Nick Cave to be pictures or imaginations of consciousness.
