After watching Tim’s Vermeer, I don’t think that Tim should be classified as a scientist or an artist. He’s a bit of both, but he’s mostly an inventor with a passion for art. The two concepts, both art and science, shouldn’t be separated, for they have more in common than we think. There is science in art and art in science, they’re two halves of a whole. So to make a final conclusion, Tim isn’t an artist, nor is he a scientist, he’s an inventor.
