The project

After teaming up with Les Fées Spéciales to create the immersive VR application MecaleoVR, the Institut de France decided to reunite the same team for the creation of a web archive of the Italian inventor.

We’ve recently been helping define the sound design and mix of a new digital archive, conceived as a way to make accessible and understandable to a wider audience the small notebooks left by LeonardoDaVinci, kept by the Institut de France. The full app allows for a digital access to some of those notebooks, with added explications to help understand, contextualize and decypher the labyrinthine thought process of the Italian inventor.

You can already access the digitalized archive in a web version directly on the institut de France dedicated website.
