ABOUT
Dandelion │ Slow Letter │ White Lies

I.N.T.E.R.V.A.L.S is a thesis project by Chiao Wei Ho. It is composed by three applications Slow Letter, Dandelion, and White Lies. Together, they create a system whose distortions challenge the instantaneity of digital communication.By exchanging convenience and practicality for hidden subjective and emotional values, the applications expose a need for complex human expression that could never be satisfied by a single "SEND" button.

We all have accommodated to the convenience of digital interaction and the idea of what a good design is by experiencing tremendous amount of internet services and gadgets around us. I.N.T.E.R.V.A.L.S demonstrates an alternative design methodology that challenges the traditional aspect of practicality, accuracy and instantaneity in user-centered design. It speculates unconventional services that are wildly available to us, a space in between. The purpose and prospect of these applications are the concealed philosophy that provokes us to rethink the meaning of digital interaction.

Chaio Wei Ho
Interaction Designer

Chiao Wei Ho (b.1976) is an interaction designer whose current research focus on the concept of Digital Medicine. Chiao believes interaction is an external communication bridge between humans and machines. Through devices, it is also an internal conversation we have with our own mind. This circle of internal and external flow forms within many of us in this technology-driven ecology. Chiao's research is in how the mind, body and device interacts with each other. The purpose is to use this philosophy to create designs that provoke thoughts, reveal hidden emotions and subjectives, and to reflect its influences on human behaviors from an unconventional perspective.

Chiao's commercial works across most consumer electronics interface design. They range from notebook, camera, cellphone, E-book to TV, projector and iOS applications. Chiao has a BA degree in Art and has worked as a interaction design lead at BenQ Life Style Design Center. He also interned at IDEO Palo Alto before he graduated with a MFA from Grad Media Design program at Art Center College of Design.
