The project Spread has been realized in two incarnations. It was both exhibited as a series of seven photographs, and as a short digital film. Spread is a mobius narrative twisting between two possible realities. Each photograph was created by exposing two negatives in the same tray simultaneously, one black and white the other color. The characters were played by Nick Lesley and Rosa Joo.

The photos were exhibited as part of a group show in 2000 at Mandeville Center at UC San Diego.

The film was screened in 2000 at The Media and Communications Center at UC San Diego. It was created in collaboration with Nick Lesley.
