Michael Dietrich

Verbascum Thapsus


The film is dedicated to recording artistic working processes. Michael documents the creation of three drawings in real time with a 16mm camera, as a moment of form-finding. Nature builds itself from layered textures and forms found in nature. To create their own organic artworks. He observed and celebrated patterns that emerge in nature. A path through a dry river, fluctuating water levels are particularly typical of feet with branching channel shapes, also called river wilderness.


Michael´s artistic practice is focused on the relationship between society and space, and in particular on the interventions in nature and the environment.
