In November 2015, I spent time at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. This residency is 17 miles from Appomattox. When I left I drove slowly home through Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. I stopped at 12 Civil War battlefields. At each one I took a long walk or bike ride. I recorded the path of each tour on my phone with a mapping app. I wanted to pay attention to place and research how and if tragic slaughter lingers in a place.

Collecting as He Goes: Dieter Brehm on his Process as a Creator & Artist at Dublin

Collecting as He Goes:  Dieter Brehm on his Process as a Creator & Artist at Dublin

One aspect of life at Dublin that encourages Dieter’s process is the way that different disciplines nurture and bolster essential passions. Because, here, he is not only an artist. He does Theatre and Robotics, as well. He is a creator.

“I like to create things, yes,” says Dieter. “When it comes down to it, all of these different things that I do come down to creating and manipulating. Robotics gives me that opportunity. It’s engineering, but it’s an artistic form.” And there is crossover. Dieter makes art for the Robotics team. He designed the logo and helped design the website, in fact.

“Really, for me, it’s a desire to express my creativity in a whole bunch of different ways [that draws me to these fields],” he says. “Each of these is an endpoint to my desire.”
