In Michal Staszczak's work there is a refined and expert assembly of contemporary objects, for example, extracts from the electronic and mechanical technology, which seems to allude to an imaginary and unknown machine, but with a vague allusion, even to organic structures. It acquires a layout of fantastic and fascinating archeology thorough the metallic coating.
