This is how my 15 years of experience boil down.
For me eloquent code is efficient code.
Beauty in code is maintainability.
Coding is a science, however code design (system design) is where anything that I can call art comes into play. In that there is a balance between functionality, maintainability, efficiency and design theory. Hitting that "sweet spot" is an art form.
In my opinion that is art in the science of code.
Ok, but Why?
