What if every commuter's playlist suddenly aligned and we heard the same song? What if we connected instead of avoided each other while going about our daily lives? Inspired by observing NYC commuters all listening to different playlists, and the curiosity of wondering if anyone was listening to the same song as me, I wanted to play with the idea that some abrupt stop of the subway caused a glitch in the matrix and instead of avoiding connection all day, a group of strangers united and heard the same song and danced the same dance.
