Go to work in an egg

How do you like your eggs? Do you like them so much you'd like to work in one? That's what artist Stephen Turner is planning to do inside the Exbury Egg, a temporary, eco-friendly workspace in the estuary of the River Beaulieu. He plans to live and work inside it over the coming year while studying the life of the tidal creek "to re-appraise the way we live, to properly consider sustainably and future use of natural resources".

Here's what he says: 
Climate change is already creating new shorelines and habitats. Established salt marsh is being eroded by a combination of rising sea levels and falling landmass and the entire littoral environment is in a state of flux. The implications for wildlife and for the flora as well as for people are challenging. Raising awareness of the past and the unfolding present of a very special location will be the task, whist living in an ethical relationship with nature and treading as lightly as possible upon the land. 
 Stephen’s electricity which he will need to power his laptop, digital camera and mobile phone will be provided using solar energy. More details and some great images at the site. -----------------------------------------------------
