REVIEW

 The
 camera turns to a herd of lethargic cattle at a barren wasteland of dump, and
 white smoke from a distance seems to swallow the cattle. The film starts with a
 depiction of Agbogbloshie in Accra, the capital city of Ghana. Agbogbloshie is
 one of the world’s largest electronic waste dumps, and it’s known as a dumping
 ground. An acoustic researcher is working on the sounds at Agbogbloshie. The
 sound he hears are more like resistance, warning, or scream. The final
 destination of electronic waste creates an apocalyptic vision and smoky ruins
 are connected to dissonant sound. The Currency - Sensing 1
 Agbogbloshie
 is a part of THE CURRENCY,
 a multimedia art research project that tracks down the global circulation of
 electronic devices.
