Through the Green Fuse: Photos of Electrified Plants and Flowers by Robert Buelteman








Through the Green Fuse: Photos of Electrified Plants and Flowers by Robert Buelteman

Photos of energized plants created by running electric volts through them using an elaborate process that makes them luminous.
My photograms are made by using the living plant itself as a filter through which electricity and fiber optically delivered light are passed, leaving the shadow and energy field of the plant exposed on large sheets of color transparency film. With these works I seek to make life itself present, revealing its glory and probing its mystery.
