This diagram represents an evening’s musings on art and science – yes my evening’s are that sad! I wanted to put art and science onto a continuum – it was an enjoyable evening’s conversation and fun to play with Inkscape to make the image.

A very convincing argument could be made to have maths as the end member of the continuum instead of science. My choice of science comes from a mixture visual convenience and personal bias towards science.

As a continuum there must also be other subjects such as psychology, philosophy etc. in between art and science. However, to put these in some kind of order is more controversial than I care to attempt. Especially when others have already stuck their necks out and done it much better than I ever could.
