~Flow commissioned data visualisation artists Moritz and Stephan to create a live visualisation based on real-time sensor data feeds generated through the waterwheel. Each recording of the data captures the levels of oxygen, acidity, nitrates and salinity values in the water as well as the turning speed of the waterwheel. This set of values provides the basis for a flow simulation which generates a unique image per measurement.
View the data ~Flow live at flowmill.org/tyne and more more about the artist process here tyne-simulation-as-visualization.
Who knew that data visualisation could so beautiful...
The data feeds will be open for you to use via Pachube.
The ~Flow team are collaborating with FutureEverything in Manchester, who are hosting a satellite exhibition from 16 to 19 May. More info available online at futureeverything.org
