The act of computer programming often involves the use of creativity to do things such as; solve problems, design APIs and architect solutions. Can we then infer that the use of creativity during the act means that the produced result is a piece of art? Of course not, but does that mean that code itself cannot be viewed in an aesthetic light? Can code be art? For that matter, what is art?

This talk will attempt to answer some of those questions and pose a few more. In it we will take a look at some of the ideas and techniques of the 37,000 year old discipline of art making and attempt to apply them to the 60 year old discipline of computer programming.
