Some Of The Interesting Things You'll See... 
Peter Saville discusses Pop Artist Richard Hamilton in a recent, very good, and highly recommended Tate Britain video (for Issue 16 of the TateShots series), specifically Hamilton's still-ultra-modern "Toaster" (work details here). Saville ultimately comes to, as he puts it, the shocking conclusion that Hamilton (inadvertently) provided "... a blueprint for my own work [at Factory]."

The insightful video, entitled Work in Focus: Richard Hamilton, is also available for download, and in transcript form.

Be sure to also check out the fascinating full range of Hamilton works at the Tate here.

With thanks to Jared Schiller at the Tate for the heads up.
