Whether they are based on screenshots from youtube, quotes from songs and books, or old family photos, Maciej's projects focus on ideas of re-appropriation, decontextualization, collage, and the creation of new narratives from old source material - cutting up, mixing up, and reconstructing it in order to reflect on the misleading nature of human memory, politics, history, media, and pop culture.
