~Flow is a tidemill: a floating building on the River Tyne that generates its own power using a tidal water wheel. The building houses electro acoustic musical machinery and instruments that respond to the constantly changing environment of the river, generating sound and data.

~Flow is part of Artists taking the lead, one of twelve extraordinary public art commissions funded by the UK Arts Councils for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
