“The Sun Lies Heavy” is an exhibition by MFA Candidate of new scenes from an ongoing project presenting an alternative history of coal mingled with myths of forgotten forests, crawling proto-reptiles, and chthonic infernos as real-time virtual puppet theater. It is fan-fiction of a 300-million-year history, built with craft techniques lifted from miniature making and tabletop roleplaying games, photogrammetry, conventional 3D animation, images and objects sourced from mining sites, as well as modified folk songs and fairy tales.
