Hart Ginsburg & Digital Tapestries
Digital Tapestries creates digital media and curates visual-arts experiences to bring nourishment and healing to people’s mental and emotional states. Hart originally formed Digital Tapestries as a psychotherapist in response to serving the diverse needs of his clients through interactive books and films. Each of Digital Tapestries’ productions – films, books and workshops encourages participants to reach beyond a surface level response by awakening to their own humanistic capacities.Hart’s approach evolved from his life experiences, incorporating both Eastern and Western elements into his aesthetic approach. Hart grew up influenced by his artistic parents and cites Charlie Chaplin as a source of cinematic inspiration:
In 2015, Hart Ginsburg founded Digital Tapestries in response to his experiences as a psychotherapist. Inspired by the healing potential of art, Hart aims to better serve the diverse needs of participants through interactive books, films, and events that encourage meaningful dialogue and human connection. Since its inception, Digital Tapestries has grown into a team of currently five members that draw from digital media, social work, psychotherapy, and communications. Digital Tapestries has hosted workshops at the Gene Siskel Film Center, School of Art Institute of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, and more.
Inspired by Chaplin, I strive to artistically portray the trials of everyday people. At the same time, I try to blend touches of humor to provide moments for viewers to find something reflective and hopefully joyful that they can bring to their daily lives.
