"We live at the edge of the miraculous."

- Henry Miller

Bas Jan Ader is one of my all-time favorite artists. For those of you unfamiliar make sure to click onto his link below. His fascination with gravity, the miraculous and his own body within the universe always lures me back again and again. The works below work as part of that search within our world and the seeking of the miraculous or transcendental.
