With Nocturne 2021, Kim Morgan will be debuting Stray Hair, the first installation of her ongoing Dust Disruptors project: an open-ended series of performative inflatable objects of varying forms and sizes constructed out of Silpoly fabric printed with enlarged scanning electron microscope (SEM) images. The images are derived from dust and ash samples taken from human bodies and their immediate environment. The Dust Disruptors can both attract and repel, inspiring both playfulness and dread, perhaps offering ways to explore and express conflicting feelings about our personal and collective vulnerability.

Dust Distruptors have been realized with the technical and professional assistance of Felix Bernier, Kate Delmage, and Jessica Winton.

Location: grassy median across from the Marion McCain Building, 6135 University Avenue
Hours: (weather permitting): Thursday 6-10 PM; Friday 6-10 PM; Saturday 6-11:30 PM
