Dit and Dah

A creative usage and approach in cryptic Morse code that explores the world of nonverbal communication to find creative solutions and build inclusiveness in learning


These pages filled with dots and dashes will be a starting point for you to engage in a nonverbal world of communication called Morse code. Originally Morse code was a vital method of radio communication during the second world war and a standard distress communication until 1999, but many innovative geniuses are bringing back this communication as a creative platform. Because Morse code is a cryptic code that can only be deciphered by a small percentage of people who have been trained or have learned to use it, it feels like it is unprecedented in the world of creative communication.

It would not be surprising if we had missed out hearing secret codes that one of our favorite bands has been subtly chiming right into our ears, the blinking lights you had seen one night on top of the hill facing your window, a series of finger taps on a table top by a seemingly engrossed young man gambling away in a board game in a park.

In fact, today Morse code is a versatile tool both in the world of fiction and in the real world. I hope that this small introduction can demonstrate how creative a new communication structure using Morse code.
