With respect to design, perhaps it will be useful to discuss this at some
stage responding to the initial question:
4. How is an art-related invention different from an invention that is not
tied to the conventions of art? How is an art-related invention
different from invention in other fields?
As the month progresses a topic that will be of interest to me would to see
if the conversion or integration of what you are calling art-related
inventions into systems of law have involved the redefinition of the work as
a piece of design (as of course art is constrained by copyright not
patenting or design/trademarks). So the question would at what point does
the shift in terminology also change the nature of the work?
