Charlotte Frost: In Dave in Orense the man in the image looks as though he is playing the structures as if they are a new, fantastical, musical instrument. It is thus impossible to take your eyes off the image(s) because you enter into a perceptual exchange of attempting to understand bits of the image but never quite receiving an answer. Although all the elements seem familiar they are out of place or exposed. Like a surgeon you are unable to experience an integral whole, but only the parts of the image. Unlike the surgeon you do not control the incision and become merely a witness to the attack. Like the magician you notice a unity in the fusion of these two different worlds.
