AND SO IT WAS, THAT THE ONLY TRACES LEFT OF CIVILIZATION WERE5 DIGITAL RELICS DISCOVERED INTHE RUINS OF AN ANCIENT HUMAN SETTLEMENT CALLED OLD YORK. LITTLE DID THE ARCHAEOLOGISTSOF THE FUTURE REALIZE, THEY WERE ACTUALLY JUST ADS.
ONE SHOW is one of the most prestigious international award shows for advertising and creativity. Mad World was a multi-media exhibition Commissioned by ONE SHOW for New York's Creative Week. The exhibition celebrates ONE SHOW's long history of creative excellence by flipping the context of some of the most award-winning television commercials of the past decade. After all, only the best ads stand the test of time. Even if that time is 50,000 years in the future. Each commercial is interpreted as a serious documentation of what life was like for our ancient culture, much like how the hieroglyphics are interpreted as depictions of Ancient Egyptian life.
