Cape Cod, Massachusetts
On July 9, 1975, conceptual artist Bas Jan Ader set sail from Massachusetts in the Ocean Wave — a single occupancy sailing vessel — toward his birthplace in Holland, as part of a durational performance entitled “In Search of the Miraculous.” Remnants of the Ocean Wave were recovered off the shore of Ireland, but the artist was never found.
