“The museum is clearly not a perfect environment to enjoy the deeper meanings of the art it collects. It is like a filing cabinet which holds love letters. We are grateful to the cabinet, but we know the love letters were not made to be read or held in such circumstances.”

– Alain de Botton from my interview for TEDxAmsterdam. We talk about the Art Is Therapy installation at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the theory behind art as a means of therapy.
