Artist Stephen Turner hatched a plan to live inside an egg-shaped structure for 365 days, braving tides, wind, rain and the sun in an effort to bring attention to the changing climate.

“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,” Turner explains on the Exbury Egg project website.

Tethered to the shoreline of the Beaulieu River in Southern England, the wooden structure has been built to be self-sustaining — large enough for bed, desk and a stove. Turner will use his time to not only study the environment, but also create artwork representative of his experiences inside the egg.

The shell of home looks a lot cozier than some other art-project habitats we’ve seen, such as the world’s thinnest house and the billboard abode. You can read more about the project here.
