For this work, I bring a pair of fake Apple Airpods with me every time I go to New York or California. While waiting for the subway/metro during or close to rush hour, I fake a stumble and drop the fake Apple Airpods on the tracks. In faux-frustration, I dramatically throw the fake Apple Airpods charging case into the closest trash-can. I pause, close my eyes, take a deep breath, and pull a new fake Apple Airpod charging case out of my pocket. I place the second fake Apple Airpods into my ears and carry on with my day.
