Art, Technology and a Medal Designed for Dishonour (2009)

The UWE Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) was invited by Richard Hamilton to contribute to the realisation of his medal The Hutton Award. CFPRs input included 3D modelling from Hamilton’s original image files of the artwork, production of a series of development models by 3D printing, and CNC milling of master patterns, which were used in the foundry casting process, by which the final medals were cast in solid silver.

The British Museum Medals of Dishonour exhibition which included Richard Hamilton’s The Hutton Award was featured on the BBC News ' Today Programme' -The BBC’s Evan Davis was shown around by the co-curators, Philip Attwood and Felicity Powell: news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/news
