Newton’s Convergence is a large, two-chamber ball machine made for The Franklin Institute, one of the oldest and most beloved science museums in the US located in Philidelphia, PA. The sculpture replaced the long-standing and well-loved Newton’s Dream ball machine originally installed in 1990. This state of the art machine has a sleek new design and a wide range of fun, up-to-date devices, and features. The machine is housed in the Sir Issac’s Loft section of the museum, a space that celebrates and explores all things kinetic.
