THE CREATIVE PROCESS

Tell us about yourself.

ALEXANDRA M. BAMBERGER

I am an international student passionate about the arts, with a particular fondness for fiction concerning human relationships.

I am a Young Artist Ambassador for The Creative Process. This means I collect all the submissions from different high-schoolers and make sure they are displayed in The Creative Process exhibitions alongside more well-known artists. I enjoy being involved in the curation process for the traveling exhibition and I also find it very interesting reading the insights of notable artists and creative thinkers because they all have their different approaches to art and different opinions. I find that you can learn quite a lot from them. I feel like it gives learning, a more personal more human touch to find out that they are not just perfect humans who can produce creative work. That they have their own process and  have different techniques and approaches to art. I find it very important for art to reach a wide audience and to be shared as much as possible. With literature, of course, one can always enjoy it for personal pleasure, but I think it is even more crucial when it is shared. It is very interesting for me to be a part of a collaborative educational project. There is so much art being produced right now more than ever, such as photography, artworks, and creative writing. It is a bit overwhelming in itself, yet despite all of this overwhelming information, we seem to be the loneliest generation to have ever lived on the planet. This is because of troubles with communication and talking to each other normally the way one would and one has in past generations. I feel that what is so important for art is for it to be in a way interactive. You go to museums, and you go to an exhibition. You see the artwork, not just on the internet, but in real life. It’s very moving and personal. You really feel live through that, and you can engage with people in real life. I think that art really allows for such things and for like-minded people to meet and share their views.


Growing up quadrilingual (including German and English), I have developed an appreciation for different cultures and their forms of expression. After spending most of my life in Germany, I am currently living in Paris, France.

What inspires you to write and make art?

THE CREATIVE PROCESS

I think it's interesting, as I read your writing and look at your artwork, there is a seriousness and courage to look at difficult social issues head on. There is a philosophical aspect to your work. You are writing and making art for a reason. Not just to entertain but to make us think.
