A brightly coloured mural which can be viewed in any direction. It has several scenes within it: people in front of computers seeming stressed, a number of faces overlaid over each other, squashed emojis, miners digging in front of a huge mountain representing mineral resources, a hand holding a lump of coal or carbon, hands manipulating stock charts and error messages, as well as some women performing tasks on computers, men in suits around a table, someone in a data centre, big hands controlling the scenes and holding a phone, people in a production line. Motifs such as network diagrams and melting emojis are placed throughout the busy vignettes.

This picture is made up of 3 images in a row, on a grey background. The first picture is an original photograph of a bowl of fresh strawberries, contrasted against the white bowl they are in a small white bottle of milk. In the middle, the photograph is now broken down into blocks of colour in the shape of the original strawberries. The final picture has been broken down even more, to the extent that the large blocks of colour are now no longer recognisable as strawberries and milk.

They are white, their hair is shoulder length and dark, and they are wearing a green t-shirt. The computer screen is dark with rows of coloured squares representing programming. The person on the right looks similar but their hair is now tied back in a pony tail, and they are wearing a white lab coat and safety goggles. They are reaching down to lift up an orange hazard label which is about the size of a book. The label is an orange square with a black exclamation mark in the middle. The person looks like they are being careful as they lift it.

Five people and a dog are seen outlined in orange, against an orange background. Two of the people talk to each other, one stands along with a stick, one walks a dog, and the other is in a wheelchair.
