Yes, I am also talking about the raw data, or source code if you prefer. OSM consists of a machine-readable format with GPS-style positions and 'tags', which can be edited as XML or stored in a relational database among other ways of manipulating it. It can also be rendered into an image for printing out or display on a web page, among other uses.
Of course it describes a collection of facts about the real world, but then so does Wikipedia, and so do paper maps. Whether it is 'art' I do not know.
