Looking at technology with Parkour eyes.
  This workshop paper discusses the theme of repurposing and its relationship to appropriation. By centering on the social, cultural aspect of appropriation we link it to affordance through structuration theory. We argue that children view technology without preconceived cultural understandings. We then present an interactive piece that utilizes eyetracking software, designed to generate social interaction.
