I watched a talk by Julie Burstein called 4 lessons in creativity. She has interviewed and worked with a lot of artists and shares stories about those artists and their creativity. At some point someone commented on how "artists always talk about their work, not their art." This got me thinking a little bit since I've made some art in various forms. But the thing that struck me was how for me, my work is my art. I program for a living, primarily building websites. 

When I am working on a project or some piece of code I work to come up with an elegant solution. Most people see computer code as just a bunch of text on a screen. But for me, depending on how it's done, it can be garbage or it can be a beautiful solution. From the user perspective some of the best, most elegant solutions are the ones that people hardly see or notice.

My work is my art.
