~Flow

Flow is a tidemill, a floating building on the River Tyne that generates its own power using a tidal water wheel and houses a range of musical machinery that responds to the river. It is one of the twelve Artists taking the lead’ commissions to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. ~Flow is the brainchild of the artist group Owl Project and producer Ed Carter: To bring their fantastical idea to life required the skills and expertise of a diverse range of professionals, including Nicky Kirk, a chartered architect; Amble Boat Company; and David Willcox, a waterwheel designer. Here David, Ed and Owl Project talk about their experience.
