About

Silo Studio demonstrate their spectacular Newton’s Bucket machine designed to mould liquid in motion.

In 1689, scientist Isaac Newton conducted an experiment to test his theory of rotational movement on liquids by spinning a bucket of water suspended by a rope. The motion forced the liquid to curve
up the sides of the bucket to brie y form a sunken shape. Inspired by this experiment, Silo Studio have developed a machine that spins colourful resins at high speed to form a series of striking bowls that each uniquely capture a moment in time.
