'Starlight' by Ashhar & Envision

~

For me the computer is the ideal tool to express my creativity. No other tool enables such an immediate and spontaneous translation of my emotions. The computer offers, so to speak, a direct line to the world of my thoughts and life experiences, a connection from human to machine, almost a merging, which makes me forget time and space and lets me dive into the
mysterious depths of my being.

This immense intensity and emotionality during the emergence of my work is possible in such immediacy only with the help of this tool. No mixing of colors interrupts the streaming thoughts, no stubborn material, nothing obstructs the idea which is transmuted spontaneously. Artists worldwide unite, people come closer to each other, even if separated by oceans. Together they can be creative and make the world a bit more friendly. Ingrid Kamerbeek, Sonthofen/Bavaria/Germany

Dr. Rodney Chang (Pygoya), Cyberart Pioneer and Director of "Truly Virtual Web Art Museum", about Ingrid Kamerbeek in April 2002:

"Born in 1952 in Gummersbach, Germany. Currently lives in the romantic area of Bavaria. The beautiful landscape not only attracts many foreign tourists worldwide but also provides inspiration for Kamerbeek's art.

After high school the artist embarked on a very special education in graphic arts through tutelage and apprenticeship with her grandfather and father, two previous family generations of professional painters.

Kamerbeek owned galleries in Kaarst near Düsseldorf (1978 - 1980) and in Mönchengladbach (1980 - 1982) before creating her own web site which assists other cyberartists to gain exposure for their work. A true inspirational leader and motivator for the cyberarts."

Much art exhibiting, on earth and in cyberspace. One of her works, "Global Consciousness", was inducted recently into the online Cyberculture Art Museum.

The artist finds time to maintain the position of Co-coordinator for East Hawaii Cultural Center's International Cyberart World Tour and Coordinator of CenterofCyberspace.com".
