In 2015, Hart Ginsburg founded Digital Tapestries in response to his experiences as a psychotherapist. Inspired by the healing potential of art, he aimed to serve the diverse needs of his clients through interactive books and short films. He soon expanded his visual materials by developing a workshop format, offering film screenings as well as panel discussions. Each of Digital Tapestries’ productions – films, books and workshops – encourages meaningful dialogue and human connection and encourages participants to reach beyond a surface level response by awakening to their own humanistic capacities.
Since its inception, Digital Tapestries has grown into a team of artists and professionals that draw from digital media, art, social work, psychotherapy, and communications.
Hart Ginsburg works as a psychotherapist focusing on existential and narrative approaches. Outside of psychotherapy, Hart is involved in film and book projects that cover a wide range of topics on humanity and healing. Hart’s approach evolved from his life experiences, incorporating both Eastern, Western, and natural elements into his aesthetic approach. A few of his artistic influences are Charlie Chaplin, Maya Lin, Harry Callahan, and his parents.
