~Flow is a tidemill - a floating building that was moored on the River Tyne from 25 March 2012 until 16 September 2012. The building housed electro acoustic musical machinery and instruments which responded to the constantly changing environment of the river, generating sound and data.

A collaboration between Owl Project and Ed Carter (working with architect Nicky Kirk), the free-to-board artwork was located on the NewcastleGateshead Quayside throughout the summer as part of Artists taking the lead, one of twelve extraordinary public art commissions funded by the UK Arts Councils celebrating the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

This short documentary film features interviews with Ed Carter and Owl Project and looks at the ideas behind ~Flow, its construction, environment, instruments and legacy.
