"SuperNova is a game show parody that mimics the tropes of American Idol reality tv shows and consists of seven characters in which Rah performs. The characters perform in the galaxy Messier 82 and present their talent in front of a panel of judges; Sirius, Mira and Bellatrix. The talent show sets an ideal stage to critically examine race and ethnic performance. SuperNova is the first video in which all these characters simultaneously engage and coexist. SuperNova also serves as an entry into ethnifuturist discourse, scholarship and aesthetics and re-contextualizes historical markers of identity and presents them in the future to be deconstructed, re-evaluated and reconfigured."
