Artist Lives in Egg-Shaped, Floating Micro-House for One Year

To explore “the meaning of place at a time of great environmental change”, artist Stephen Turner teamed up with the association of SPUD Group and PAD Studio to build the “Exbury Egg”, an egg-shaped micro-home that floats on water. 

Designed to be “tethered” like a boat, this unusual little house is made to “rise and fall with the tide”—containing bare necessities like a shower, a stove and a hammock bed, the Exbury Egg allows its occupant to more directly experience the seasonal cycles and processes of nature. 

From 15 July 2013 to 14 July 2014, Turner will be living and working inside and around the house, documenting his unique one-year residency in the micro egg home on his blog.

"This is not a romantic anti-modern back to nature project, where technology is rejected or spurned. Rather it is about demanding the best and most efficient of the new to combine with the tried and tested."

The mundane world rarely offers us satisfying language with which to relate the extreme mental or emotional states we nonetheless frequently endure. They’re difficult to even discuss, because we lack the tools to describe them accurately and the opportunity for dialogue about them, and to me this is the reason that horror as a genre, and indeed all fiction, exists: stories about the fantastic, the supernatural, the extreme and appalling provide access to states which are familiar but otherwise impossible to talk about. Some feelings are so difficult that only a horror story can convey them, identifying them as overtly evil gives us an excuse to then explore them.
