Visit BALTIC’s Level 4 External Viewing Terrace to see an aerial view of the artwork and hear a soundfeed from ~Flow.
~Flow is a tidemill – a floating artwork on the River Tyne that generates its own power using a tidal water wheel. The building houses electro acoustic musical machinery andi nstruments that respond to the constantly changing environment of the river, generating sound and data.
The specially commissioned floating artwork, which visitors can board for free, will stay on the NewcastleGateshead Quayside throughout the summer as part of Artists taking the lead, one of twelve public art commissions funded by the UK Arts Councils, celebrating the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

~Flow is a collaboration between Owl Project and Ed Carter.
~Flow is invigilated by BALTIC Crew and members of staff from The Sage Gateshead.
