Is this Art or Engineering?

Hello, I am the maker. Some of you may have seen my recent post in the graphite drawing forum. I have also made videos of two popsicle stick models I have made. The first is a ship and the second is a a model of Taipei 101. Please respond with any questions!

I think the process yo took lends itself more to art than to engineering. If you would have drawn out technical plans and attempted to creat some sort of working model, than maybe it would be closer to engineering. But with this you built it from the ground up, creating it as you built it. The same way a sculpter would have.

Eddieblz, thank you for your feedback, it is much appreciated. I have engineered a K'NEX Ball Machine that uses a Fushigi ball instead of the standard K'NEX plastic balls. Here is the video.
Thank you.
