Who is Dangerdust?
According to CCAD every week two anonymous intruders have been sneaking into classrooms on campus, leaving some cool chalkboard messages with the signature, #dangerdust. It captured the attention of the students and are now shared far and wide through social media.
One of the students were lucky enough to get an interview with #dangerdust.
“It’s definitely a passion,” they agreed.
“I think we’re tired of the computer, and [chalking] gives us motivation.”
“I remember the first couple [chalkboards] we did, I didn’t think anything was going to happen, [but] people were like, ‘Yeah, I’ve seen that on Instagram!’”
The two complete each masterpiece in one fell swoop (which can take up to 11 hours), usually working on Sunday or Monday nights in a vacant classroom. They choose a quote from a list compiled from Google searches and suggestions from friends, draw up a rough sketch, and then get to work using regular chalk (usually from the dollar store, they joked).
“Every time we do it we try to make it look different from the last one,” they said. “We try to adopt the style of [whomever we’re quoting].”
