IMR Public Intervention

The Institute of Morphoid Research will be doing a public intervention, at the Brentwood LRT station, on Friday, June 29th, from 5-9PM.

Founder and Chief Researcher, Jennifer Akkermans, will be talking to the public about the IMR, and will bring a Bacteriophage for an informal “show-and-tell.”

If you ever wanted to see a Morphoid in person, now is your chance!

Morphopodia: The Trailer

This is a short trailer for the Institute of Morphoid Research’s brand new documentary!

The film, Morphopodia: A Strange New World in Our Own Back Yard, follows Akkermans and the Institute of Morphoid Research as they study the Morphoids in detail.  Included are short segments on each of the Morphoids, including interviews with Akkermans herself, footage acquired by hidden cameras, action shots, and eye witness accounts.   The film offers a comprehensive overview of the IMR and the creatures it studies.

Exhibit: Sepal, Scarabaeidae and Pteropod at the Alberta Craft Council


Coming Up Next....

The IMR will be at the Alberta Craft Council’s Discovery Gallery in Edmonton, Alberta!  If you’re in the area, go take a look!  No Morphoids have been discovered this far north, and this is the farthest these particular Morphoids have traveled, making them a rarity in that part of the world.

Sepal, Pteropod and Scarabaeidae are the three Morphoids in the exhibit.  The display will be up and open to the public from May 28th – July 9th, 2011.  The Discovery Gallery is located at 10186 – 106 Street, Edmonton Alberta.

Exhibit: The IMR at ACAD’s Grad Show

The Institute of Morphoid Research currently has a display up in the main mall of the Alberta College of Art + Design. The exhibit will be on display until May 28th.

The display is a diorama of the nymph form of Nephropoleon, one of the most newly discovered Morphoids.  A Meet the Morphoids Profile will be online sometime after the exhibit at ACAD is removed.  Please go see the display if you can, to learn more about these fascinating creatures.

The Alberta College of Art + Design is located at 1407 – 14th Ave. NW, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
