Media artists YoHa (Matsuko Yokokoji and Graham Harwood) present their Coal Fired Computer. This recent work responds to the displacement of coal production to emerging economic superpowers like India and China after the UK miners’ strike in the 80s. Coal Fired Computer also reflects on the complexities of our global fossil fuel reliance as well as the histories of labour and industrialisation. Alongside this is Tantalum Memorial, produced by Harwood, Wright & Yokokoji. This work is a telephony-based memorial to the people who have died as a result of the coltan wars in the Congo.
