Responding to your questions: Depending on how you define the role of the artist you might find that the answer to your question is either yes or no. If everyone is an artist then the purchase of a comfortable bed might be considered an artistic act. This is an age old question and I'm sure that landscape architects and interior designers would most likley consider themselves artists. Personally I would only consider the act artistic I it was prefaced with the self knowledge that you were consciuosly creating something that, to you, was art. If you wait for others to validate your art, your relinquishing your independance and personally devaluing what you consider to be art. If you feel it to be so, do it. Validate yourself and don't wait for others to do it for you. This takes allot of strenght but the results are worth it. REGARDING ART AND ECOLOGY. If your really concerned, be conscious of your materials/wastage/media. Photography is loaded with toxics. anything you do will have an impact but try and minimize it
