Legorretta Alive -Istanbul Bilgi University, Visual Communication Design Department's contribution to the Outdoor Vision Festival 2012 held at Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD)- is an audio-visual performance with experimental techniques, which allow to define the geometry of an object or architecture using three-dimensional video content that emphasize its structure. Using these experimental techniques, we can transform, create, expand, amplify, and interpret spaces by using large scale video projections on architecture or physical objects.
Legorretta Alive was made an homage to Ricardo Legorretta, the world-known Mexican architect of the Visual Arts Center Building at the SFUAD Campus, who passed away on December 30th, 2011. Legorreta -who introduced Mexican modernism to a global audience- was known for his cubic structures, usually painted in striking combinations of rich and brightly colors, forms, patterns and textures. He reintroduced the "wall culture" of Mexico emphasizing the supremacy of solids over voids and the use of color to enclose wall space.
Legorretta Alive is composed of animated monochrome geometrical shapes matching the real size and the shape of two cubic towers at the top of Visual Arts Center Building. The performance consists of three main parts: Part One is a series of simple 2-dimensional animations defining these two cubes; Part Two highlights the patterns, the textures, the drawings and the sketches used by Legorreta as design elements; and, Part Three is the finale where 3-D illusionary contents reveal us Legorreta's total design principles. The performance is also accompanied with a digitally produced abstract soundscape synchronized to the movement of images, re-shaping and transforming the cubic forms on which they are projected.
From Istanbul Bilgi University,
In 2011, TV3 produced two very special interviews featuring the scientist and broadcaster
Eduard Punset and the presenter and humourist Andreu Buenafuente. The programmes,
which generated considerable expectation and required a significant investment, consisted of
conversations between Punset and Buenafuente about a range of issues concerning everyday
life set against a video mapping projection of almost 100 m2.
Tigrelab was chosen to develop the contents of the backdrop, an audiovisual "wall" 24 metres
wide and 3.5 metres high. This reactive and continuously changing scene allowed the two men
to continue to talk comfortably whilst they were taken from place to place...from a modernist
library, to a New York building, to being surrounded by a futurist mesh created using images of
Words like love, city, brain, future formed the basis of the production that was accompanied by
live conversation. A total of 20 different spaces were created. The programme was recorded
in front of a studio audience for subsequent broadcast, allowing Buenafuente and Punset to
talk freely whilst the producer "transported" them to different scenes based on where their
conversation took them.
Tigrelab proposed an audio-reactive backdrop developed by WeLoveCode using Processing.
The system was reactive, allowing for the images to change depending on what was being
said. This broke new ground in the field of interactive set design for television. The image was
divided into two parts that were connected to left-right stereo audio, one side for each of the
The technical department created the montage for the projection and management of the
video mapping using three Barco FLM 20K HD projectors and the WatchOut 5 program,
offering considerable flexibility to the producer.
The critically acclaimed programmes were a great success, with an audience share of 22.5%.

"A-cero XV Aniversario" is a 3D mapping projection directed by Onionlab on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the architecture studio A-cero in June 2011. The first six minutes review the three architectural lines followed by the studio throughout its 15-year history, first posing the bases of sculptural origin and finishing off with samples of the most representative works. Finally, Onionlab presents a personal vision of the architecture of the future where light, dynamic surfaces, liquids and domotics are the protagonists.
