Thomas John Gerhardt

A computer that judges how perfect your circles are.

We should appreciate our friend the computer... it is really good at some things. And computers should respect us because we do some things really well. "Erkel the circle Judger" is about computers and people cooperating to create a work of art... the perfect circle. Users will be invited to step up and try to draw a perfect circle, when they are done Erkel will look at their drawing, compute how round it is, and then tag their drawing with a number(via stencils and an airbrush). This process will be completed on a long roll of paper that will be kept and displayed.
