Flow enters the Tyne

Flow, an artwork by Owl project and Ed Carter seen   entering the River Tyne this afternoon accompanied by the Port Of Tyne's pilot cutter Bewick

Flow is a tide mill - a floating building on the River Tyne that generates its own power using a tidal water wheel. The building will  house electro acoustic musical machinery, and instruments that respond to the constantly changing environment of the river, generating sounds and data.

Flow will be free and  open to all on the River Tyne from 25 March 2012.
This project is part of Artists taking the lead, one of twelve   public art commissions funded by the UK Arts Councils for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad to help celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
