and part of an artist's job is to transfigure suffering.

I don't think so at all. An artist's job is to create something that gives pleasure. Are you saying a piece of art, that discovers, reminds or reaffirms some beauty in this world is not art?!

An artists job is create something that imparts something to the receiver. It doesn't have to be just pleasure. It could be insight, pain, joy, or anything really. That is the point of art, it's up to the observer to see what they get from it. That is why art can't really be compared to what you are comparing.

You are trying to assign value to what art gives somebody vs what a technological advancement gives someone. I just don't think you can do that.
