Dave (Lost)

"Dave" is the 43rd episode of Lost and the 18th episode of the second season. The episode was directed by Jack Bender, and written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. It first aired on April 5, 2006, on ABC. In flashbacks, Hugo "Hurley" Reyes is in a mental institution, where he deals with an imaginary friend, Dave. Libby also has a brief flashback in this episode, revealing that she attended the institution along with Hurley. The island events in the present day have Hurley seeing Dave on the island, while other survivors confront " Henry Gale" ( Michael Emerson) after his stated backstory is revealed to be false.

The episode addresses a fan theory which considered the events of the series to be hallucinations or dreams. The character of Dave was written as both a side of Hurley who denied his problems and an analogue to Hurley's disappeared father, and his scenes were filmed so that his reveal as imaginary would be a plot twist.

Dave (artist)

Dave (real name David Pflugi, born 1969 near Laufen, Switzerland) is an artist whose highly unusual style of art has garnered him international attention. Notable works include the "world cup works", three works of art he created for the FIFA world cups of 1998, 2002 and 2006 in collaboration with FIFA, all of which were signed by the players of the finalist teams just before the cup final.

He again received international media attention in 2009 for two performances he held at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece and at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany. In Frankfurt, he is known as the creator of the artwork "Space of Time" which is a permanent architectural feature of the main entrance to the Commerzbank Tower.

Dave's artistic style is based on the idea that one object can look completely different depending on which perspective it is viewed from. In its simplest form, this takes the form of a three-dimensional relief being painted with fragments of different two-dimensional images. Viewed from a specific position, the fragments come together to form complete images. If the observer moves, the anamorphic illusions come apart again and the image becomes abstract. A heavy emphasis is placed on the Gesamtkunstwerk aspect of the works, rather than individual images. Thus, Dave's artworks, which he refers to as "fusions", often contain a large number of various artistic styles and techniques: A "fusion" can easily be a sculpture, a classical portrait, an action painting and a performance all in one.

Amongst other places, his works have been exhibited in Berlin, Basel, New York, Frankfurt and Cannes.

DAvE (Infineon)

DAVE (Infineon) Digital Application Virtual Engineer (DAVE™), a C/C++-language software development and code generation tool for microcontroller applications. DAvE is a standalone system with automatic code generation modules and is suited to develop software drivers for Infineon microcontrollers and aids the developer with automatically created C-level templates and user desired functionalities.

Latest releases of DAVE include all required parts to develop code, compile and debug on the target for free (based on the ARM gcc toolsuite). Together with several low-cost development boards one can get involved in microcontroller design very easy. This makes Infineon micocontroller products also more usable to small companies and to home-use / DIY projects - similar to established products of Atmel (AVR, SAM) and Microchip (PIC, PIC32) to name a few.

DAVE was developed by Infineon Technologies. Therefore, the automatic code generator supports only Infineon microcontrollers. The user also has to get used to the concept of the Eclipse IDE. The generated code can be also used on other (often non-free) development environments from Keil, Tasking and so on.
