I don't know that "art" and "science" are mutually exclusive. The art is
in the creation and the science in the analysis. Communication only works
where there is clearly defined meaning to things, often in a cultural
context. I have found it interesting to watch how a child reacts to some
kinds of music. It is obvious that they are getting a different meaning
from the same piece of music than I am. It is the same with writing a book
(I remember scientifically analyzing books in school) or painting a
picture. The tools used to communicate can be defined with science, but
art keeps creating new things to define.
