Athonia "Nia" Cappelli
Nia has worked with two very different Burning Man different artist/engineer groups. In 2016 she worked with a team in Santa Cruz to redesign audio and lighting components for Dragons of Eden. Riveting, soldering, arduino assembly, and LED ornamenting were just a few of her contributions to these exhibits. Nia was co-pilot on the Dragons of Eden art car in Illumination Village (aka IllVille). Satan’s Calliope, Boom Cookie and the neon dragon artcar “fluffy” were all projects she helped with that year. In 2017 she was a team member on DiscoFish, DJing for the dancers and the roving audience, from sundown to sun-up. By day, Nia is a network engineer. By night she has a DJ residency, Saturdays, at MOTIV nightclub in Santa Cruz.
