This is What Happens If We Send 15,000 Volts through Wood

Melanie Hoff, a student at the Pratt Institute in New York City, wanted to see the results of channeling a lot of electricity through a sheet of plywood. At the link, you can watch a cool time-lapse video of the Lichtenberg figures--the branching patterns of electricity--spreading through the wood.

Anyone else recognize the Electric Universe in this? Where have you seen these patterns before?
