That's very anthropocentric. You haven't seen elephants creating art? Termites also create art. Nonhuman primates have also created some prehistoric rock art.

Consciousness isn't even required to create art. Just look at the double helix in DNA or fractals in snowflakes.

That "art" is created in the mind of the viewer.

Wow, now we are getting somewhere. Actually every art is in the mind of the viewer, this is why in your mind a photograph can never be an artwork as you claim, but that doesn't mean that photography cannot produce art because millions of other people, more qualified than you,  including museum curators, art critiques and art collectors, do consider photography as a mean to produce potential work of art.
