Severn Bore in action – reciprocity, exchange and beauty – where Flow came from

It feels a little indulgent to do this but watching the bore always reminds me of when I decided to name Flow Contemporary Arts. I’ve always found the River Severn very centering – the tidal rhythms and the constant switch of sea water with freshwater makes me very curious.

I’ve lived close to the Severn for over 30 years now and it has always been my muse. Finding a name for Flow felt right – philosophically and emotionally. And here’s why – a film I made this morning, with my iPhone camera, nothing special.

People on the river, in the river, next to the river, all engaging with its energy and power – what better way to start a foggy day?

and a still for good measure – approaching the river…
