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.

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.

As the Co-Publicity Executive Board Member, the team and I developed a Publicity/Marketing Plan to further engage with our target audiences (teens and professionals), increase donations, engage the community, and get more Latinas into colleges + universities and develop into the leaders and complex problem solvers of today.

I created the content below :)

 


Comisión Femenil is a multigenerational all volunteer based non-profit; and before I got started I did a survey to gain a greater understanding of the overall membership experience. The data that I collected was critical in the development of the brand.
