DANDELION
A poetic method of communication

Human communication is extremely complicated. We are not always certain about the thoughts we want to express. Situation like "there is something I want to say, but I don't know if I should say it or not…" happens all the time, but why the current email services only offer a single SENT button to ensure our words get delivered? Dandelion is an iOS application specifically designed for this hesitation and uncertainty.


Designer borrows the metaphor from dandelions, the implication is some dandelion seeds may land, others may not. It interprets the complex human communication in life in a poetic way. Dandelion uses the build-in microphone to detect the action. Once an user activates the microphone and blows into it, it detects and triggers the application to blow each individual words away. The application sends out incompletely information so the recipient will get an Email with only some parts of the words arrived as shown below.




Dandelion focuses on the idea of hesitation and inaccuracy between point A and point B. The design disputes the purpose of an Email system by incorporating randomness in the obscure space between send and receive. It lets serendipity takes over accuracy and beautifully translate the unspoken words, hesitation and trivial emotions between people into the interaction.
