Day 1
There are two situations which will happen random things: first one is natural rules, eg, gravity could help taking place random; the second one comes from human being, eg, people pick up one article from a pile of same units, the one which was picked up is random.
so, I got an idea for the radom experiment that a person who hold a handful of sand and throw them into an empty box which is seperated to four areas and labled by A,B,C,D, every time I throwed the sand it would show different numbers of sand in different areas. This can be played many times.

Day 2
In China, there is a kind of traditional painting, that's blowing prepared Chinese ink on paper and it would form different beautiful patterns, such as bugs,pine tree, plum blossom tree or other natural things. So I use the similar method to demonstrate random: I dropped a little volume of ink on a paper and quickly shaked or gently moved that paper. It formed amazing patterns.

Map experiment:

I counted the customers number every ten mints around in a coffee shop and writed down the number.

Day 3
The limitation like this: if it is an odd number, pass the number of crossroads and turn left; otherwise walk past the number of crossroads and turn right. As a result, when I walk past the last crossroad after I turned around, I took photos for the people who were passing the street and kept the pictures what I Found out around my final location.

The two young lady were walking to me, and they were looking at me weirdly when they saw me holding a camera.
They seemed like looking for some place or some person because they returned to the street later.

This old lady seemed a little different from other pedestrains, she hold a bouquet of flowers and a bunch of keys. The key's ring looked very special. She moved fast and seemed so consentrated on her destination.
