Extending “The Exquisite Corpse” into the digital world, the “Exquisite Donut” prompts artists to re-create the surrealist drawing game using the coding languages of OpenFrameworks and Processing. Following a set of rules artists create, anticipate and subvert one another’s drawings without having seen them–pushing the total work in new directions by anticipating what others might do. These digital drawings travel around a circular array, changing form and appearance.
