Who’s looking at whom?

EYESS, an installation that challenges definitions of time and space by inviting visitors to observe the International Space Station, ISS.

Every day, the ISS orbits the Earth in 92minutes, 16 times per day, at an altitude of about 400km. It is constantly inhabited
by a crew of 3–6 astro/cosmonauts. When passing overhead at night, for a few minutes it becomes the brightest object visible
in the sky. 

The two eyes follow the movement of the ISS, as it orbits around the Earth.
