"Light Matter While I'm Here" was conceived in April 2019 in Belgrade, Serbia subsequently exhibited at Kvaka 22. The piece explores cultural identity, politics, and fluidity. These themes are social, yet personal alluding to the dualistic in human life. Manowski's approach towards the materials began with collecting newspapers, local advertising flyers and field recordings then rearranging these pieces for video projection. In combination, he built small speaker "nests" and composed a piece for microelectronics. By using found materials and paper mache for the construction the piece has both an ecological and naturalistic attitude.
