That old chestnut! 

Yes, partly true, but the point I was making (maybe not clearly) is that there are artists
today who have a totally hands off approach - they have the idea then farm the work out 
to assistants or studios like Mike Smith's which will fabricate whole projects for them. 

I'm not attacking one system or another, I just thought it was an interesting article and the
comments seemed to suggest a lot of people are tired of the very highly produced slick work
coming out of various studios. 

Also, from the point of view of the artist, a hands on approach may be more satisfying in the end.
