Plastic Primitive

Plastic Primitive

By Ace Hotel- 16th September - 24th September 2017

During London Design Festival, designer James Shaw will take over the entrance to Ace Hotel London to create the installation ‘Plastic Primitive’. Using his invented process of Plastic Baroque where a homemade gun extrudes lengths of melted recycled plastic, James will reimagine the leafy entrance area creating pots, stands and a towering plant totem.

Plastic Primitive seeks to explore our relationship with plastic, a material that surrounds us yet is often invisible. James notes that organic matter, including plants, of past millennia are the source material for oil and plastic; “At the Ace Hotel London we will play with the seeming perverseness of surrounding living plants with plastic to create a playful and irreverent origin story of this very commonplace material.”
