Digital Tapestries' COVID-19 Resources
As an advocate of healing through art, Hart founded Digital Tapestries in 2015 to produce short books and films to be used as supplemental materials in his practice. Digital Tapestries aims not only to help those who need healing but also to provide a space for people to cultivate empathy for others.
We hope that our visual art experiences manage to touch and heal people's emotional states during this extremely difficult time. Now more than ever, Digital Tapestries wants to be of service to people around the world who may feel overwhelmed, anxious, or lonely. Please feel free to share any materials on our website with whomever you think may benefit from them.
During this COVID-19 crisis, we want to extend our hope for everyone’s well-being and safety, especially for each of you and your families. Though the days ahead might be more physically distant, we are still connected.
Below are some of the materials that we think would be beneficial to share with you all.
“Together,” explores this idea of the vulnerabilities in our lives through the examples of leaves flowing through the city and nature together. The idea of togetherness is to overcome this loneliness and separation and understand that through our vulnerabilities we can find strength in being together." - Hart Ginsburg
