Matthew Dent – Medal Design Submission | Matthew Dent 唐獎獎章設計概念
The Tang Prize is a stage for the very highest levels of research and social contribution. As such the medals awarded ought to be a physical embodiment of this recognition. The design brief required that the medal encapsulate this grand event in a set of medal designs that will be treasured forever by their recipients. Figures in relief commonly grace the faces of medals and coins around the world, a de rigueur tradition that Dent appropriated and reinterpreted with classical low-reliefs of contemporary iconography.
