Leonardo was originally written for television. During the early 1980s, I became involved in a BBC project to make a film about Leonardo da Vinci, with particular attention to his influence on 20th century technology and philosophy. As a visual artist, but one who was originally trained as a physicist, any individual who’s life-work spans and conjoins the arts with sciences is fascinating to me. Edward Cowie 2010.
