In 1975 Bas Jan Ader disappeared at sea while trying to sail from the East Coast of the United States to Europe as poart of a project titled In Search of the Miraculous. Ader's considerable influence on later conceptual artists stems from the way in which he used the cool analytic and anti-subjective aesthetics of conceptual art to explore experiences that would seem definitely subjective--the emotional intensity of tragedy and the romantic quest for the sublime.
