Tyler Starr: "'Attempted Fix: Dams, Bases and the Resulting Wobbles in Japan' explores cross-relationships between the anti-dam and anti-U.S. military base protest movements. Factual data and historical references amassed during seven years of research in Japan are imbued with poetic associations and offered as points of departure for the reader. Unintended consequences and contradictory intentions that commonly appear in politics, protest movements, construction projects and everyday desires are explored as essential to the attempts to 'fix' perceived wrongs in the world."
