Personally I think this applies to everything. It's the artistic vision that's the art. Weather the person uses paint,photograph or a coffee table.

I'm trying to remember who but one of the old Italian masters would go to the quarry pick out his stone. Walk over to the guys with the chisels. Tell them his vision. Come back awhile later and pickup the more or less finished piece.

Or a photographer that uses a custom printer.
