Robert Buelteman ditches traditional photography tools in favor of something more electric: jumper cables. As the only known artist creating high-voltage photograms, the California-based artist runs 80,000 volts of power to nearly tranlucent plants, then illuminates them with fiber optic light. The reaction: bright blue electrons play across maple leaves, sunflowers, thistles, and twigs for Buelteman to "hand-paint" around some of nature's most basic plants. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
