Ad Attack is a series of documented public ads that bombard citizens to consume. These are one-minute videos on the pervasiveness of advertising, the chosen weapon for a consumerist society. Smartphone photos of public advertisements were taken in the subway stations in cities: Beijing, New York and Paris. Reoccuring patterns are noticed in each culture’s advertising campaigns: Beijing emphasized improvement of quality of life, New York-security and Paris-sexuality.
