Artist Stephen Turner has worked with the designers to create the “Exbury Egg” which is a short-term, power efficient self-sustaining operate space in the estuary of the River Beaulieu, the UK. Turner will live in the egg for 12 months to examine the altering patterns of its marine ecology, while generating artworks inspired, influenced and informed by his surroundings.

The egg is created from cold molded plywood and nearby timber, and it’s about 20 feet lengthy and 9 feet wide. The egg will rise and fall with the flow of the estuary, floating on the water at higher tide and resting on the mud at low tide. The interior of the egg is a easy space with a hammock, a little stove, a desk and a wet space.
