Georgia O'Keeffe, Meet Dr. Frankenstein

I owe that heading to a description in a cultural feature in Wired magazine, "Force of Nature: Artist Puts Petal to the Metal for Electrifying Images", about the extraordinary work of Robert Buelteman, author of Signs of Life.

Buelteman uses a "high-voltage photogram process" called Kirlian photography. I'll leave it to you to read "Force of Nature" to understand the process.

In the meantime, give yourself a jolt.
