The Exbury Egg is a self-sustaining floating structure that provides a place to stay and a lab for studying the life of a tidal creek.

The Exbury Egg is a temporary, self-sustaining workspace that floats on water, providing a place to stay and a lab for studying the life of a tidal creek. The result of a collaboration between PAD studio, the SPUD group and artist Stephen Turner, the Egg contains a bed, desk, a small stove, and a wet room.

Turner will work from the Egg for a year, in the estuary of the River Beaulieu in the UK. The Egg will be ‘tethered’ like a boat and will rise and fall with the tide. The structure includes a collecting and collating center with integral storage and display areas.

The artwork created will stem from Turner’s occupation, developing through direct experience “an understanding of local natural cycles and processes and the relationship of the environment to the narratives of human activity in the unending calendar of seasonal life.”

Schools will be able to engage with the Egg project on science, art, ecology and engineering topics. Opportunities for community participation with people of all ages will be offered through a series of events, seminars and workshops. Click through to see pictures of the Exbury Egg:
