Power Lines


The Egg is powered by a 12v dc current generated by a solar array in the nearby field, then carried on galvanised tracks and in armoured cable through the thorny thicket to an underwater umbilical cord to the egg. It is inverted back to 230V ac at 150 watts, which is sufficient to drive my cameras and charge the lap top. An unasked for 20 watts  for lighting will provide me with back up, as I intend to rise with the sun and sleep with its setting as an induction into a more natural lifestyle – where the working summer day will be longer than that of winter and the annual 9 – 5 put aside.
