THIS IS NOT A SNAKE
THIS IS NOT A SNAKE

"By transforming refuse — the rusty, jagged, rubbery, unrecyclable junk produced by industrial exploitation of the land and its minerals — into an anthropomorphic object, Luger gives a relatable form to environmental and social misdeeds that are often considered in the abstract.

His monster is man-made, but not just by him. It is derived from the bad habits of a hundred years of digging deeply into the earth to capture its oil, while neglecting the things that already flow on its surface. There is a lesson in that, he says." - THE DENVER POST
