Most people think of Walden Pond as a beloved natural space, but few consider how the Massachusetts State Reservations has been consciously re-constructed to match cultural expectations. One hundred years ago, the Pond was anything but pre-eminent nature, with a train stop, an amusement park, and large parts of the forest logged out. Only with the renewed interest in the Walden "of Thoreau" did the park as we find it today take shape. This short documentary was produced for Ipek Tureli's Miniature Worlds seminar at Brown University. It is a collaboration with Zachary McCune and Samuel Schmerler.
