Alain de Botton – Art as Therapy…

ART-AS-THERAPY-book-shot_56[1]

I’m only about halfway through the book, but so far I’m enjoying it as a great way to add validity to viewing art…..what do you think?

Alain has taken it further, by applying some of the thinking processes described in the book, in the form of “post-it notes” in a gallery…..I’d like to go to see what the impact is on the viewer…..if you go, let me know how you found it! In the meantime, you might have to make do, like me, with this short video of the experience:
