Y_NIS, is a collaboration between Nisa Karnsomport, Sylvia Aguiñaga, Emily Leon, & Ruby Ríos – we create interactive installations in public spaces. We’re friends that met at DIY Girls, an organization that enables young girls & women to explore electronics, programming, & design. We learn to make cool art & help others do it, too.
Together, we created an interactive bio dome experience for the community of Glendale and the greater LA Area – S.T.E.M education in an alternative atmosphere.
We partnered with Glendale Arts on their 2nd Open Arts and Music Festival. Glendale Arts and OAM has offered a forum of expression, tools and resources to display and present our work.
The DOME GARDEN is an immersive educational experience for the community. “When the blood in your veins returns to the sea, and the earth in your bones returns to the ground, perhaps then you will remember that this land does not belong to you, it is you who belongs to this land.” – Native American quote Learn about the diversity, movement, & origins of nature through sight, sound, touch, & smell. Experiences include workshops on collaboration, sound & conditional design, stories about our world, & day & night projections.
The Open Arts & Music Festival provided an opportunity to build community between artist and audience.
