- Choose one of the objects you selected and describe how your initial understanding of its affordances changed over the course of the exercise?
A) One of the objects I have chosen is a tissue roll. Initial understanding has been changed into different affordances like a chair, telescope and also paper weight. They actually changed by being in different situations, looking in different angles.
- 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 the exercise.
A) The first object is a power adapter, initial affordances we’re its an adapter which you can plug any type of device then the affordance changed into a heavy block, design piece, hanging object and paper weight. The second was a dental floss, initially affordances we’re normal then later they changed into a sitting table, playing block and a spinner. The third one is explained in the first question. The combination of all the objects has got to an end of different objects like an art piece, briefcase, scissors, holder. Later we have been in different situations, being like a different variety of people and went to the affordances of how they interact with it.
