supernova is an emotional monument and place of encounters at coachella valley music and art festival 2018, CA by roberto behar and rosario marquardt of miami-based r & r studios. the installation is a 40 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 origin of supernova is in the sky, the idea of hope and the world of tomorrow — 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.

r & r studios installation’s brightness is made of a constellation of thirteen stars: a single multidirectional star made of twelve stars each facing a different direction. ‘supernova is a shooting star, a temporary streak of light to navigate our time and guide us to new adventures,’ comments the design team. ‘it 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.’
