I suppose at a low level, everything can be a science. Even
Art. I've listened to different musicians and have noted differences
for the same piece. The lesser one, my music tutor points out is just
a technician who has reduced the art into a replicable science, the
greater is an artist whose art vary and adapt to mood and times.
At the highest level, mathematics, physics can also be an art
form. Not everybody could see the relations between the numbers and
theories and produce a clean representation. Similarly, while most
programmers can cook up a program to take inputs and spit out answers,
it takes a conscientious artist to create a program with aesthetic
appeal, user friendliness, distinctive code style, elegance and
