The Fluff Constructivists (also known as the Fluff Construct) collaborative art entity began in 2000 in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Principal members Ethan Kruszka and Mikel Bisbee-Durlam combine elements of phantasmagoria with post-situationist interventions in order to create images, scenes and experiences at times reminiscent of regional museum dioramas and B-grade horror films. Fluff Constructivism draws from modern strains of formalism, post-minimalism and the dangerous realm of county fair aesthetics.

In recent years, a special collaboration has existed between the Fluff Construct and Shawn Cheatham of Q & A Productions.
