connect with the sublime.

of Bas Jan Ader

"He wrote the lyrics from the Coasters song Searchin' across the bottoms of each photo. By integrating the clichŽ of pop emotional expression with his searching walk, Ader forced the work back from transcendental romanticism, and kept it grounded in the realm of the mundane. In this and other works, he communicated his ultimate frustration in attempting to connect with the sublime."
