Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is former chairman of the Syrian Computer Society. He is known to be a computing enthusiast, or in colloquial terms – a geek.
In this project, I used the online building game Minecraft to design and exhibit a model of a Mausoleum for president Bashar.
In August 2010, this work was presented in Aleppo, Syria. The following summer, the computer game went live.
