The primitive aesthetic has permeated into contemporary design language as a way of reconnecting ourselves to basic forms of craft in the modern environment. The dancing shelf, the donor skeleton, is the antithesis of this, a gimmick condensed out of the Chinese manufacturing industry, with little relation to the handcrafted. Primitive Progressive Plinth is a dynamic display that re-animates and anthropomorphises the idea of the standardised white cube plinth. The ambition of a plinth is to appreciate the beauty of an artwork, this is a hyper-real version of this function and arguably more high performance. Its twisting and shifting frame makes it mesmerising and hypnotic.
