When ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen was on the International Space Station two weeks ago he took with him a very-special portrait of himself drawn by Portuguese visual artist Vhils. The work was made to fit exactly in the main window of Cupola observatory and is part of a film called The Meaning of Life that documents the lives of multiple people, including Andreas Mogensen.
Vhils' work was designed to incorporate the nuances of Earth's rotation as the International Space Station flies overhead with our planet's geography shining through Andreas's face.
Andreas is one of the seven people portrayed in the film directed by Miguel Gonçalves Mendes, here is a teaser of the part for Andreas Mogensen:

The full film will be released in 2017 but here is a trailer:
