4.1 A material analysis of the airport
You will now have the chance to apply some of the insights gained from the previous section to objects commonly found in the airport.
In this activity you’ll be examining two objects – the passport and the baggage scanner – in light of the analysis. To help you do this, consider the following questions for each item:
- What work has to be done if the object in question is present?
- What work would have to be done if the object in question were not present?
- What is being delegated?
- How (if at all) is this object configuring or scripting the person using it?
Then make some notes about them in the boxes below.
1. The passport
2. The baggage scanner
Now watch the following video where these questions are posed for the baggage scanner.
Now watch the following video where these questions are answered for the baggage scanner. (Don’t worry if your answers were different to ours.)
