Henry David Thoreau stood at the precipice of the industrial age, faced the American frontier and saw the coming of a new natural order. Today we can see farther than ever into our ecological future to find a new existential crisis and an ever-changing natural order.

 

This video installation is composed of source footage from a national survey of homemade recreational battlefields and a new generation of off-grid homesteaders.
