Leonardo da Vinci made his Southeast Asian debut at the ArtScience Museum of Singapore in November. The exhibit named: Shaping The Future explores da Vinci’s legacy and brilliance with original drawings from his largest notebook, the Codex Atlanticus. By the way if you miss the exhibit in Singapore their permanent home is in Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan. Da Vinci was beyond brilliant as he excelled in Math, natural sciences, technology,
architecture art and music and somehow tied all those disciplines together…..we 21st century humans could take a moment to pause and reflect on that…..
However, what struck me in particular were his drawings of the Mechanical wing. Geez, it’s an airplane wing. But wait, he drew this circa 1490.. …..so timing is really everything when it comes to innovation. Human brain power is generally ahead of its time. If da Vinci was alive when the Wright Brothers built their version of the modern airplane he would, like so many of us do with our own ideas, have exclaimed…hey wait a sec, that was my idea centuries ago
but would anyone pay attention to me!!!!
