1) Choose one of the objects you selected and describe how your initial understanding of its affordances changed over the course of the exercise?

It changed by understanding the circumstances in which the product could be use and, by looking for “hidden” clues or subtle things that pointed on how the item could be used another way.

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?

It did by making manipulations and understanding how the concept was intent to work in the first place

Did it give you inspiration or insight for how to work with affordances as a designer?

Yes

Discuss this through the specific objects you explored in the exercise.

It gave me inspiration by looking at the object with different eyes, and asking “what if” which is normally overlooked, I tried to use a knife when my hands were tight up, it gave inspiration to possible create a knife that’s easier to use.
