The Newton Machine
Making Energy at the Edge

1 February - 15 April 2018

Presentation of the project The Newton Machine, winner of the II Cultural Innovation International Prize.

The Newton Machine is a design manual and prototype for an energy storage device, made with a local community using their tools, spare parts, and expertise. It takes us from the power socket, ‘through the wall’ to the energy infrastructure behind. The Reconstrained Design Group worked with Eday island, Scotland, to create this exhibition of demonstration machines.
