Supernova by Roberto Behar & Rosario Marquardt at Coachella Music & Arts Festival 2018
Two years after their iconic Bésame Mucho installation at Coachella, R & R Studios returns to Coachella Music and Arts Festival, Indio, Caflifornia, with 40 feet tall Supernova to continue their artistic journey, creating “imaginary solutions” for a better world.
Supernova is “a new emotional monument and place of encounters at Coachella Music and Art Festival 2018” according to Roberto Behar & Rosario Marquardt / R & R Studios of Miami. Supernova is a twelve point forty feet tall polychromatic star, an explosion of light and color celebrating music, art and the future of everyone together at the green in Coachella. The project doubles as a low-tech satellite simultaneously capturing and beaming good vibes to the world. The radiant star defines a circular magnetic field performing as a social meeting space at the main field of Coachella.
They explain that the origin of Supernova is in the sky, the idea of hope and the world of tomorrow.
Supernova brightness is made of a constellation of thirteen stars. A single multidirectional star made of twelve stars each facing a different direction. Out of many, one star is born. Supernova is like a shooting star, a temporary streak of light to navigate our time and guides to new adventures.
SUPERNOVA is a mirage that we can touch, an instant landmark to Wish Upon a Star…An unforgettable luminous symbol of a new world of possibilities for all.
