In the spring of 2003, I was subcontracted in Barcelona
to conceive a large scale interactive installation for the Maritime Museum.
Celebrating the 75th anniversary of Tintin, the Museum inaugurated a new
space of 800m2, in which the visitor was submerged by the universe of
Hergé. The exhibition "Llamp de rellamp! Tintin i el mar de llegenda"
recreated the fascinating world of the famous comic strip by the use of
five fictitious scenarios. The scene I worked on was "El mars Del Orient".
The scenario was composed of a dark tunnel with several screens built
on its sides. The viewer used a flashlight to go inside the tunnel and
by means of light sensors, activated the screens by pointing the flashlight
at them. When a screen got triggered, an image with sound appeared, making
the scenario fun and mysterious.
