This is an interactive art piece which shows video with generated text "poetry" subtitles, as well as playing audio (spoken word or music). It responds to the presence of users, playing different media. This is an evolution of the work "black box" by the same artist, in collaboration with Sean Jewett.
* See support/ for ubuntu-kernel (kernel version) and dpkg --get-selection output
* if running audio components as a non-root user, user must be in group 'audio'
* I have used runlevel 3 (default is normally 2). I create an /etc/inittab file (example can be found in support/). I remove the gdm startup link from /etc/rc3.d/
* video uses mplayer running on the framebuffer instead of running X windows.
For this I have chosen an ATI Radeon card (lspci output:)
