For a bit more presentation, and while we're inventing new syntax
anyway, how about this:

@media (min-width: 480px) {
  .artdirected { content: replaced url(attr(src-small)); }
@media (min-width: 600px) {
  .artdirected { content: replaced url(attr(src-medium)); }
@media (min-width: 800px) {
  .artdirected { content: replaced url(attr(src-big)); }
<img class="artdirected" src="foo.jpg" src-small="foo-small.jpg"
src-medium="foo-medium.jpg" src-big="foo-big.jpg">
