SPREAD in 2023 wants to work while floating lightly around the world. The visuals are made by photographing and processing bark, which looks like the surface of the earth from above or a fluid gas. We use a risograph technique to print in two colors on fine paper “Gmund Color Matte-FS” with an awareness of plate misalignment. This printing process also produced different ink grazes on each sheet, resulting in the expressive work “FLOAT”.
