Also try to catch both shows of Katie Paterson, a young Glasgow-born artist now based in Berlin. Her solo exhibition of mind-boggling new work at Ingleby Gallery includes melted meteorites and her Fossil Necklace, which spans the entire history of our planet in a single string of beads. A little way outside Edinburgh at Jupiter Artland she is also showing Earth-Moon-Earth, a complex and magical piece which captures a transmission of Beethovenâ€™s Moonlight Sonata that had been reflected from the surface of the moon, converted into Morse code and now uncannily emanates from a self-playing grand piano.

Katie PatersonÂ can transport you from the micro to the macro in a heartbeat. The rising British art starâ€™s past projects include buryingÂ an atomic-sized grain of sand in a desert, setting an old vinyl of Vivaldiâ€™s Four Seasons playing on a turntable at the imperceptible speed of the Earthâ€™s orbit and a parade of lamps on a Kentish pier, flickering in time with lightening storms around the world.
She has a rare knack for connecting the everyday with the great imponderables of time and space. Created in collaboration with AnOther andÂ Haunch of Venison, herÂ unique project at theÂ 54thÂ Venice BiennaleÂ is no exception, elegantly linking the literally throwaway and familiar with one of the universeâ€™s most perplexing marvels.
The following photographs document some of the 100 or so explosions of confetti, spontaneously let off here and there at unplanned sites around the ancient city. In quantity and colour, the 3216 little pieces of paper match gamma-ray bursts, highly rare events which are the brightest explosions known in the universe â€“ if one were to occur in the Milky Way it would mean total extinction for life on Earth. With a hand-held confetti cannon, Paterson compresses every GRB explosion into a brief, beautiful bang.
The full documentation of 100 Billions Suns will be onÂ Katie Patersonâ€™sÂ websiteÂ soon.
