You can't argue against the fact that the material has a very large 
impact on the outcome of a work of art. But no, code is not art. No 
more so than paint or canvas. The importance of the material varies. In 
some cases it is very important, in others not so. I wouldn't go so far 
as to say that code is THE next material. It's definitely not going to 
replace other materials but it is a new material with very new 

best reg.
