It polluted the Colorado River which supplies drinking water to Arizona and Southern California. Piece includes sculpture from recycled items including antiques-Geiger counter, cake box and table, and accompanying ekphraisic poem.
Dedicated to Congressman George Miller (D- Ca.), an environmentalist who wrote the law which led to the cleanup of the uranium �tailings pile� that was leaching into the Colorado River.
