"Leonardo is probably history's prime example of a universal genius. The dazzling creative intellect of this accomplished humanist made him not only an outstanding artist and aesthetician, but also a philosopher, mathematician, astronomer, geologist, inventor in dynamics and ballistics, engineer, and architect. His notebooks and manuscripts are among the most important sources we have for the study of sixteenth-century learning and philosophy." Milton S. Fox, Editor
I mentioned the Mona Lisa is of relative small size during my presentation to the faculty. The actual size is 20.75 inches wide and only 30.25 inches high. The normal perception is of larger scale.
I discussed the following points as being essential to my design philosophy.
As a content provider I feel it is essential to challenge my students with these ideas and issues. Thank you for this opportunity to present my thoughts.
