This week we follow up on our discussion about the relationship between art and technology. We explore the difficulties of evaluating artistic endeavours in an engineering context, as well as the dangers of seeing art as simply something to be "added on" to engineering. We talk about the philosophy of both art and engineering, inventing, and finding satisfaction in our own esoteric kinds of art.
If you've ever found beauty in a particularly artful subroutine, or a beautifully balanced equation, then this episode is for you. Perhaps we don't have to add art to anything, it may have been there all along.
