Tintin and "Els Mar de l'Orient"

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.
