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%.

Hala Stulecia, Wroclaw, Poland.
-> Be sure to watch the making of the piece here: vimeo.com/41475403
When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier.
The piece proposed for the Centennial Hall of Wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century.
Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space.
By using references such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis or the utopian projects of Archigram to confront the different visions of the future at different times, Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquié were interested in trying to create a vision of a future with no precise time reference. A timeless future.
