The Sacred Science of Aleksandra Mir

Born in Lubin, Poland, Aleksandra is a citizen of both Sweden and the USA. She currently lives in London. Her collage series - The Dream and the Promise, combine religious iconography with images and symbols of space travel. They allude to the complicated, and not always contentious, relationship between science and faith. 

“If angels and astronauts share the same sky, 
isn't it time they were introduced?”
