Bas Jan Ader was a dutch artist. He became famous after his ‘I’m too sad to tell you’,  ’fall I' and 'fall II' 16mm videos. In 1975 Ader embarked on what he called “a very long sailing trip”, a daring attempt to cross the Atlantic in a 12½ foot sailboat. He claimed it would take him 60 days to make the trip, or 90 if he chose not to use the sail. Six months after his departure, his boat was found, half-submerged off the coast of Ireland, but Bas Jan had vanished.
