for a class assignment, i had to photograph examples of what designer jane fulton suri calls ‘thoughtless acts.’ the idea behind the project is that daily people adapt the objects around them in an effort to better suit them to their needs. in her book, suri collects photographs of these adaptations as a way of promoting a common-sense approach to new design. these are my shots from around providence.
