Bas Jan Ader

IMG_1007I really connected with the piece because it reminds me of this time I fell of my bike and broke my hand. It wasn’t fun. I would’ve much rather fallen in to this canal instead of cement. It almost seems like he wants to go into the canal.

It is amazing how he was able to capture this scene with such clarity. I imagine that is pretty difficult with moving subjects. It makes me wonder if they did this in the first try or if there were multiple attempts.
