1) Choose one of the objects you selected and
describe how your initial understanding of its
affordances changed over the course of the
The object I choose is brush. The traditional use of brush is to clean, but when I change it to the other side, it can be use as a hard stick to dig.
2) Given that affordances is a relational
property between a person and an object ,
how did the manipulation of the object and
the person’s abilities inform your
understanding of the concept? Did it give
you inspiration or insight for how to work
with affordances as a designer? Discuss this
through the specific objects you explored in
Considering the object knife, I realized that it is hard for the blind people to find out which side of the object is the handle since they have to touch the object before they know the fact. They may get hurt during this action. So the relationship between blind users and the knife are not being considered in the process of designing the knife. So as a designer, I should consider about all the possible situation , at least I will list which are the customers that the product is not suitable for.
