The Pill Machine is a part of the exhibition Mind the Gut at the Medical Museion in Copenhagen. The installation was conceptualized and crafted in collaboration with Mogens Jacobsen.
When going through the installation's 8 input machines, guests are asked questions such as "Where do you feel your emotions?", "Do you practice any form of mind intervention?" and "What color is the sky today?". The guest uses a coin with an embedded RFID tag to activate each machine. At the end, they drop the coin into a form of vending machine, which then diagnoses you and dispenses words and (real) medicine to 'cure' you.
