Choose on of the objects you selected and describe how your initial understanding of its affordances change over the course of the exercise?
I selected a spatula as an object, which is used for spreading cream on cakes, however, through out this exercise I realized other affordances to this object. I think it can be used for digging and planting, similar to a shovel. Another affordance of the spatula is that it could be used as a personal fan, since it is plastic, flexible and lightweight.
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 your inspiration or insight for how to work with affordances as a designer? Discuss this through the specific objects you explored in the exercise?
Yes, it did give me inspiration
