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

We chose a plastic fork as the object of observation in class. At first, there was only one function of the fork, which was to stick the food together and put it in the mouth. However, when we twist it and remodel it, it becomes a piece of art. Now that we have decided to break it and sew our teeth on a fork, we have a lot of paint pens. As a result, these capabilities change from simple design utilities to potentially useful tools. However, this is actually a mistake we found. It turns out that the relationship between people and things is bearable.
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 the exercise.

We chose the camera as the object of observation. Its initial function for the average person is to use a graphical method record. For less light, cameras can also be viewed as light. The camera can also create masterpieces of art in the hands of the audiovisual family. Which inspired me to divide user groups and scenarios in this terminology.
