Doughnut is a multi screen media 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.

Doughnut 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 installation features a soundtrack constructed from a dialogue between Stubbs and audio artist Scanner.

The work has been made in collaboration with Gina Czarnecki(Editing and Audio re-mix), Scanner (music) and Bedford Community Arts who commissioned the work with funding from East England Arts.
