If Drawings Were Photographs

I found this today and thought it was pretty interesting and probably fun to do:

It's interesting because both the drawings and the photographs take artistic composition, but they're still very different.
Does that make sense?

It does make sense. How related is this to so-called "living art"?

As far as I can gather, living art has two requirements:
1. You experience the art in person, so it sort of ceases to be living art when you take a picture of it or something. So you actually have to walk around (or sit and watch) to experience the sounds you hear, the lights you see, or if it's people pretending to be famous paintings (for example) just look at them. Then the people are the art instead of you interacting with something.
2. ah...I forgot the second thing. hm.

but to answer your question, I don't think this is very related to living art since it's kind of a different medium.
