“The cataclysm came from space. Around the time in which the giant ice turned the earth into a snowball, a starburst also occurred, a kind of creative outburst. Therefore, the rate at which the stars appeared and supernovae burst in a galaxy accelerated, fuelled by interactions with other galaxies. The encounter with the dark nebulae and the remnants of supernova explosions would have occurred in successive waves that eventually broke the climate balance of the Earth, subjecting it to consecutive periods of extreme heat and cold.” – Daniel Mediavilla. 

“One day in 2012, for the first time in six years, I felt annoyed with being the subject in front of Olmo’s camera. It was aggressive, and cold, and dirty, and far. It was the first of many ruptures. Because Supernova is the story of many ruptures. We broke up a relationship. We broke up plans. We broke up a family. We have broken the beliefs, the roads, the dishes, the days. We have broken up everything to start all over. And here we are today, looking at a bang, looking at the sunrise. A sunrise without prospects. But one sunrise, after all.” – Patricia Reguero Ríos
