Space Station Tracker (2018)

Space Station Tracker is a commission for the Science Gallery Dublin. It was created for the Life At The Edges exhibition in 2018. It is a piece of folk-art which electromechanically tracks the position of the International Space Station, and its astronauts, as it passes across a map of the world. SST is a mashup of 1950's radio technology and contemporary internet architecture. This piece is an example of what the last survivors on a failing earth would use to track and signal to anyone left alive in space.
