Alan, semi-structured interview (audio excerpt):

Alan, a writer, explains how he tested the installation The Giver of Names to work out how it analyses the image of the objects. He describes the rules by which the computer generates descriptions. He explains that it was obvious to him that he should place objects on the plinth as he is familiar with New Media Art and could therefore understand the work's implicit invitation to interact.
