Recursive Reflection: Engaging with Art & Architecture from Muslim Cultures & Civilizations

Project by 
Mehjabeen Datoo
Project Year 
2012
Recursive Reflection is a system of software that allows multiple users to capture, reflect on and replay reflections about art and architecture, particularly that from Muslim cultures and civilizations.  By re-listening to their own perspectives and tagging them for particular features, and by being deliberately and slowly exposed to others’ perspectives, learners are engaged in a continuous process of articulation, representation, listening and rearticulation.  These small incremental adjustments with appropriate time lags and prompts will allow learners to slowly build their knowledge of and refine the way that they perceive art and architecture.
