Hart originally formed Digital Tapestries as a psychotherapist in response to serving the diverse needs of participants through interactive books and films. Each of Digital Tapestries’ productions whether films, books, or 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.

As mere mortal, Adrian Galli began his life in this world in Cincinnati, Ohio. Immediately he was not content with living in just this Universe, however, so his mind and adventures with others began at an early age when imagination took him though space and time; creating stories and totalities of his own.
Having left his hometown only weeks after graduating high school, he moved where he found a realm of exciting possibilities attending Columbia College Chicago for directing and producing. His imagination was given a chance to come alive not just on a written page or in his mind but in films and television; a window to view these creations and others’ as a reality. Adrian, traveled around the world working on documentaries, narratives, photography, and other creative efforts, seeing no story as unworthy but a chance to give life to something that moments before did not exist or was undiscovered.
Today he brings his experience to Digital Tapestries; spirited creativity, insatiable curiosity and unique perspective on media to exciting films to share with his audiences, showing a universe no one knew existed.
