We often define Technology as instruments and tools produced by a technician and art as works such as paintings, sculpture, architecture, poems etc. created by an artist. From an ontic point of view, such humanistic definitions are correct but if we look for the essence of things and want to determine their ontological status, correct definitions are not enough because the essence of everything is that which allows it to be what it is. Thus, merely the technician or the artist and their artifacts cannot specify the essence of technology and art. This paper tries to determine the ontological status of technology and art based on the relation of human to Being from the viewpoint of Heidegger. Moreover, considering that he recognizes different periods of history as ages of Being and believes that Being has revealed itself in various forms including Poiesis and Gestell in each age, the research tries to find out why this thinker has called the ancient Greek the age of Art and the present day the age of Technology .
