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 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.
