it·er·a·tion

/ˌidəˈrāSH(ə)n/

noun

noun: iteration

the repetition of a process or utterance.

    • repetition of a mathematical or computational procedure applied to the result of a previous application, typically as a means of obtaining successively closer approximations to the solution of a problem.

    • a new version of a piece of computer hardware or software.

plural noun: iterations

As in math, or computer programming, the concept of iteration is used to express the different versions/steps of an algorithmic process, in the arts it represents an intrinsic characteristic of research methodology. Artists iterate techniques, tools, technologies and forms to create, experiment with and refine concepts, to explore narratives, ask questions and structure collective experiences. In this context, the Research Studio at DXARTS (Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media) at the University of Washington focused on the field of live performance as an iterative technique for PhD students to present their work. The works that will be presented at the Chapel include error-prone improvisational experiments, ritualistic and meditative compositions, contemporary dance with diy electronics, and an archival mosaic of the story behind the Good Shepherd Center.
