In 2016, Volvo launched its ‘Human Made’ advertising campaign.
New adverts focused on individual human lives. School children. Explorers. Factory workers.
Global sales increased by 20%.
This is an attempt to do the same.

With live music and video artistry, [insert slogan here] is a fevered excavation of adverts, objects, memory and longing.
