No matter how we look at it Technology is paving the way for human evolution. The people in the field of art, sports, music even though enjoy celebrity status they don’t direct human evolution.
Art is very instinctive. When it comes to instincts animals have better instincts then us. Human evolved in being conscious and aware of our data analysis and decision making processes. We make decisions based on both conscious and sub conscious data processing. Some animals are very good in predicting earth quakes and hurricanes but they have no clue how they come with these forecasts. Humans may not be able predict them with the same accuracy but we know process with which we are trying to forcast.
From above, I tend to conclude that art is well below technology in the evolution ladder.
