This is a proposal for an experimental course on the concept of “Ξένος” (Alien) through the use of the virtual three-dimensional platform @postasis.
The participants learn how to create a world of "living entities" (avatars, NPCs) inside the multiuser space of @postasis platform. Who is the Alien?
Before starting the course, it is suggested that you do the following:
a. watch a video here, explaining the basic concepts of the @postasis platform.
b. see some examples of projects on the concept of Alien here and here.
c. do the basic steps of practical experimentations based on the "Creation of the world" introductory workshop (see here)
