Aley Baracat

I am an Interactive Playable Experience Designer focused on creating immersive AR/VR experiences.I believe in the power of harnessing skills and knowledge from various fields. In my opinion, all knowledge is interconnected and a multidisciplinary education can give access to different paradigms and mindsets which can help me gain distinct perspectives into the world. Motivated by this belief, I pursued a double major in Computer Engineering and Graphic Design as well as a minor in Mathematics at the American University in Cairo (AUC). Then I earned an MA in Independent Games and Playable Experience Design in Goldsmiths University London.

My work revolves around exploring the accessibility of knowledge in relation to power. I consider myself as an emotional designer and I try to channel my personal experiences, thoughts and emotions in my projects. Aside from design and technology, I am an independent musician. I have been working for a couple of years now on my debut arabic album which is called "Rasayel - رسايل" set to be released in 2022.
