Yesterday, 9th April;- took part in creating this unique piece of art in Edinburgh !
My contribution to Katie Paterson Requiem art installation at Ingleby Gallery was to pour flask No.3 of 364 – 21g of the Earth’s crust, mantle & core, approx. 4.5 billion years old ! Amazing to see all the 364 flasks lined up around the room, a timeline of the universe !
