Art tomorrow?

I'm not too interested in trying to create new forms of art. I can see why people embrace new media and create online art - such as Hennessy Youngman in my previous post who ended up joining the establishment... or maybe he was always the 'establishment'... but nonetheless his ART THOUGHTZ were pretty funny - like this one on that bullshit art movement called Relational Aesthetics:


What I think would be more interesting is art created outside the art system, but not amateur. Art that is created for the domestic space: So small works that are conceptually rigourous and technically proficient, but not reliant on dealers, curators, art fairs, public/private galleries, etc. to promote them. Somehow going straight from artist to 'collector' (for lack of a better word) at a reasonable price (as rejection of art as an investment or commodity)... How might this happen? What is the avenue for this?
