At the intersection of political art and
environmental science, queer nonbinary Chinese-American
Yĭn is a celestial presence in a static world. Their work
ranges from enthralling pieces in The New York Times, to
art processions designed to shake up science communities, to short
stop-motion films about the natural world — a praxis that
challenges the status quo and engages the people, cuts out the
traumatic edges of displacement and reanimates them for a new
world. Nia chatted with Fèini
about the mash-up of art, activism and the radical implications of
an expansive view of the scientific. (Episode description written
