I rarely post work that isn't mine but this is something I find intriguing...

Bas Jan Ader / Falling

I was recently introduced to Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader's work by photographer Bill Sullivan. 'Bas Jan Ader died, or disappeared in 1975 at the age of 33, in a boat somewhere off the coast of Cape Cod. He was attempting to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a 13 foot sailboat. Why? For Art; as a performance that would challenge the boundaries between art and life. He experimented with film, photography, installation, and performance.'

Though I couldn't find his film "Too Sad to Tell You" I'll include a still from it here as well.
