MINNEAPOLIS - A new exhibit at The Bakken Museum along Lake Calhoun is giving us a unique look at electricity.

The photographs and drawings by artist David Goldes are on display through April 22nd in an exhibit called "Electrified Drawings."

Goldes draws graphite, a conductor, onto a sheet of paper and then runs an electric current through it. His photographs capture the exact moment when that electric current is turned on, which creates a spark. "When you're someone who draws, you think about electrifying your drawing and this is a literal version of that. I've taken high voltage and run it through a graphic or pencil line on a paper surface," Goldes says.

KARE 11's Bryan Piatt walks us through the process from inside David's studio.
