Donut is a twin dvd projection and 4 monitor installation about the drawing of a perfect circle. But the creator is a driver not an artist, the canvas is asphalt and the medium is a car. Donut is the term used by young fast car enthusiasts to describe a circle of burnt rubber made by spinning a rear wheel drive car on the spot. It represents bravado and skill on the part of the driver who is usually part of the car cruising culture, one of Britain’s biggest underground movements. The cruising culture is loaded with rituals of post-adolescent masculinity - rites of escape, self expression and status. The car is both a sexual emblem, a private venue for early sexual experience and a way of forging a personalised and distinctive space in 21st century consumer culture.
