Data: Bryanna Hebenstreit (Ph.D. Candidate at the University at Albany, SUNY) will provide video data of an instance where a participant becomes familiar with a floorboard cutting tool on a home refurbishment site. This data provides a look at how participants arrange themselves in relationship to the tool, how participants project their usage of the tool, how other participants are brought into the interaction, and how ‘experienced’ onlookers may anticipate by the embodied conduct of a participant potential consequences of that arrangement and exclaim or otherwise attempt to avert undesirable consequences. Data is in American English.
