JANE FULTON SURI THOUGHTLESS ACTS PDF

When we use a newspaper to block the rain, rest against a railing or sit on a wooden crate, we are utilising the resources and objects within our environment, regardless of whether or not their intended purpose is being fulfilled. Whilst shopping in Carindale, I was able to identify and photograph some examples of each of the seven interactions listed above. On the other hand, the third image depicts the way that everyone automatically steps on the correct side of the escalator in order to get up or down to a different level. Without question, all of these people understand the use of these facilities and follow them with no need for instruction.

When we use a newspaper to block the rain, rest against a railing or sit on a wooden crate, we are utilising the resources and objects within our environment, regardless of whether or not their intended purpose is being fulfilled. Whilst shopping in Carindale, I was able to identify and photograph some examples of each of the seven interactions listed above.

On the other hand, the third image depicts the way that everyone automatically steps on the correct side of the escalator in order to get up or down to a different level. Without question, all of these people understand the use of these facilities and follow them with no need for instruction.

The woman on the left followed along the pedestrian crossing and felt encouraged to stick within the path, knowing that she was out of the way of any cars. The man on the right, in response to being tired or simply needed something to lean on, utilised the height and sturdiness of the railing to support his weight as he used his phone.

Their evident laziness and lack of concern for the workers within the store influences them to utilise their immediate surroundings as, essentially, a dumping ground. On the right, there are a group of people sitting around a table right next to the ice cream shop at which they purchased their dessert.

The boy made use of the physical qualities of the table, knowing that it would support his weight, as he climbed on top of it. The first example is of a woman who utilised her pram to store her personal and shopping bags, while her child walked beside her. On the other hand, the image to the right is of a trolley that was being used to hold the two toddlers. The intended purposes of these wheeled carriers were adapted to meet the needs of the specific people and circumstances shown above.

In all of the images in the slideshow, people are conforming to the behaviours and rules that have been either been taught to them by society or have become second nature as a part of their day to day lives. The first, on the left, resembles the woman walking in line with the pedestrian crossing. I was intrigued by what psychologically would have influenced her to walk exactly between the two sides of the path without ever stepping over the edge.

Was it the fact that she felt safe from her surroundings by staying on the painted area? The second sketch depicts the man sitting near his adventurous son as he scrambled across the seat onto the table.

As I took the photo, I watched as this father was happy to let his child wonder freely and thus, perform thoughtless acts from a young age. I wondered at what point in our lives these reactions and responses began to happen. So how does this all link up? While this concept relies on a balance of feasibility, desirability and viability, it cannot be achieved without observation, Hunter, B.
