What is the difference between the technical and the artistic?

Is setting up the light and shadows for your shoot technical or artistic? Is figuring out the tonal curve that has the right amount of contrast technical or artistic? What about choosing the right lens? Is learning how to prevent (or exaggerate) tall buildings from looking like they're falling over a technical or artistic skill? Is learning how to post-process a technical or artistic skill?

It seems to me, that these things and many others are very technical skills that is used to transform a creative vision into a material image. It doesn't matter if it's your creative vision or if you're being directed by someone else's: The better you understand the craft, the better you're able to achieve the vision.
