"There will always be more things in a closed, than in an open, box. To verify images kills them, and it is always more enriching to imagine than to experience." Dayna Gross

MISTAKE OR MIRACLE is an invitation to the imagination; to the very real, yet very distant, untouchable outer-space. The book features photographs by Jana Nowack and corresponding poems by writer Dayna Grosz. The images and lyrics explore something of the beyond - beyond the concrete, beyond the material, beyond thought and beyond this planet. While the spark of this work was ignited off the blank canvas of a snow-filled Scandinavian landscape, it very slowly and very quietly matured into, well, what can we say? something very mysterious within the void of an infinite nothingness.
