The work of Dani Rosin reflects our unwillingness and our inability to understand the world from the point of view of the Other. The point at which we are located will forever prevent us from totally understanding the manner by which the Other sees and interprets his world. More so, our stare is buttressed on one truth that grants us security, and the point of view of the Other undermines this stability, and thus rouses within us the dual apprehension, that the Other possesses the power to prevent us from seeing and being seen. The existence of dialogue does not require total concurrence with the Other, but only the adjustment of the fixed and stereotyped source of our stare, and conceding respect to the point of view of the Other, will enable us to achieve true communication.
