An essential work of structural harmony, binary oppositions and self-reflexive form. “Leonardo’s notebooks and Valéry’s essays on Leonardo’s creative method inspired my filming in Florence. I filmed myself observing various locations in darting camera movements, then I reflected on the details and placed them within my ‘notebook-film’. From the first scene the film’s image and sound develop through a series of metaphors.” (Robert Beavers)
