Don’t Whack the Bottle!

By Nathan Myhrvold
Limited Edition

Ketchup is a non-Newtonian fluid—a liquid that, when at rest, acts like a solid and stubbornly stays in the bottle even if you turn it upside down, making it a fascinating food to photograph. You could get the ketchup flowing by giving the embossed “57” on a Heinz ketchup bottle a few vigorous whacks . . . or you could use high-powered compressed air to blast the ketchup onto French fries, which is what Nathan did to capture America’s favorite condiment in motion.
