I'm Ale Grilli, a freelance interactive media designer and developer from Chile. I like it best when making things with a cultural or educational impact. Here is a selection of projects I've worked on, mostly personal, the ones closer to my heart. Contact me any time via ale¶agj.cl (just change that character for an @).

interactive installation 2011

Interactive artwork commissioned by Centro Cultural Palacio La Moneda, project for which I was in charge of software programming, and which was featured in the 2013 Design Biennial in Santiago. The Adobe AIR application interprets motion captured by a camera and displays reactive visuals and audio on a large projection. Design by Sebastián Skoknic, support by Francisco Fuentes.

A web version was also developed, which is available at their website by clicking on the number '05' and then on 'Juega!'. Requires a webcam.

video game 2008

Prototype for my undergraduate thesis project. An experimental videogame that offers the barest elements for making visual compositions, and attempts to evaluate their compositive parameters.

Click on the animated picture to start. In the center, a canvas that can be filled with the circles to the right, by drag-and-dropping them. Below, a rough (and inaccurate, in this prototype) analysis of some compositive values: color temperature, symmetry, visual rhythm, and visual accent.
