Da Vinci Project

For some reason these lines from Edgar Allan Poe sprang to my mind as I watched Alain Escalle’s visually ravishing Da Vinci Project: All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.  As a visual diary of the Renaissance world it evokes a time when knowledge made a return to Europe and with it new visions for humanity.  It is a fantasy within a reverie – and is completely spellbinding.
