“An Affordance is a relation between aspects of the soci-material environment and the embodied abilities of an agent that in the context of a form of life, that give rise to a set of possible actions.”  ~ Reitved, Denys, and Van Westen

The concept of Affordances is one of the most critical and powerful tools to help us reposition creativity. 

Affordances are what we perceive, interact with, and experience as our reality. They are not some “thing” out there, rather, they are the relation between aspects of the environment and embodied abilities as they are made possible by a way of life.

Understanding the situated relational nature of our reality via the concept of affordances gives us access to powerful new ways to participate in creative processes.
