Ron Morrison [Elegant Collisions] is an interdisciplinary designer, artist, and researcher working across the fields of human geography, digital technology, and urbanism. Their practice works to investigate the generative ways in which the unassimilable refigures, complicates, and dissolves our understandings of race + geographic space as fixed and knowable. From building open source platforms to upend the continued practice of solitary confinement to crafting community based archives to combat gentrification, they investigate cartographies of slow violence, cybernetics, unassimilable data, and blackness.

They have been a collaborator with design teams that implemented projects in New Orleans, Ghana, Colombia, Ethiopia, New York, and Venice and have had work featured in AIA New York, the UN World Urban Forum, and the Tribeca Film Festival. They have taught at Parsons School of Design, and are currently an Annenberg PhD Fellow in the Media Arts + Practice Program at USC in Los Angeles.
