“ALL IS FOUND” 
This short film documents a quiet circuit-bending musician (Mickey) as he searches through a demolished school in the hopes of finding scraps and discarded objects which he later tinkers into musical instruments. The creators of Alchemy of Waste are inspired by dumpster divers, tinkerers, and circuit hackers – those eccentric characters who are normally perceived as hoarders, but are in fact the underground pioneers of the upcycling movement. The team produced a series of short films which identify and investigate the project’s key themes. The second installation of this series – currently in post-production – stars NYC-based cabaret performer Dangrrr Doll, and was shot in the warehouse of the Terracycle headquarters in Trenton, NJ.
