This paper reports on experience design work in progress. “Wet Pixels” is intended to stimulate discussion on the notion of a digital original reproduction. The prototype's physical design is informed by mechanical reproduction devices (e.g. relief press, large format camera) and retrospective print processes (halftone, dot matrix). The concept is outlined for a wooden viewing frame with a miniature camera that enables viewers' selection and capture of a photograph. The subsequent print process onto Japanese paper using the Arduino-controlled matrix of stepper motors with paint-tipped sponges is then detailed. When presented in a gallery, Wet Pixels provides users with more sensory feedback (physical, visual, auditory), through tangible creative mark making on paper, than entirely digital processes.
