Our Dynamic Earth

PufferSphere video projection

A centerpiece within the ‘Scotland’s Time Lords’ exhibition at ‘Our Dynamic Earth’, a hanging 1.2m PufferSphere tells the geological story of Earth from the formation of the continents as we know them through to the cause of earthquakes and volcanoes.

An exhibition dedicated to the work of James Hutton (who is commonly viewed as the father of modern geology); Our Dynamic Earth sits at the foot of an extinct volcano which in 1785 was used as the basis of Hutton’s research on rock formations which still stand true to this day.

A quite amazing exhibition, we would encourage anyone visiting Edinburgh to pay a visit.
