The Galatea program engages in deep attention because the program forces you to pay close attention to what is around Galatea and what she says to get her to turn around. As you read more into the conversation you get more information about various different things. The commands I tried were things like “look at placard” and when I did I got more information about the what Galatea was made of and the one who created her. I remained at the back view of Galatea.

>What do you see? That’s not a verb I recognize. >Look at the verb You can’t see any such thing. >Look at the placard Large cream letters on a black ground. 47. Galatea White Thasos marble. Non-commissioned work by the late Pygmalion of Cyprus. (The artist has since committed suicide.) Originally not an animate. The waking of this piece from its natural state remains unexplained. >Why did Pygmalion of Cyprus commit suicide? That’s not a verb I recognize. >Think about Pygmalion You’ve no opinions on the subject. “You might try speaking to me,” she prompts. “It’s not polite merely to stare. And I’ve gotten very bored, standing here.” (An attempt to engage the audience — the proactive element… you frame the words for your review, but you find that you can’t get as far as a complete first sentence. There’s something more here; anxious, chilly, visceral. Better pay attention.) >
