Asobi: Newton’s Cradle

Yasutoki Kariya, an art student, working on his senior thesis show, looked to the famous desktop toy known as Newton’s Cradle for creative motivation, which demonstrates the third law of motion proposed by Isaac Newton.

Newton’s Cradle, which was first conceptualized in 1967 by the British actor Simon Prebble, was able to successfully visualize momentum, which is the physical manifestation of the law of action and reaction, which asserts that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
