Martí Guixé H!Bye Pills and Instruction Card Prototypes 2000

  • Not on view

Commissioned for MoMA’s exhibition Workspheres in 2000, H!Bye are fictional medications that help the nomadic worker—someone who continually travels for business—settle into ever-changing surroundings and be productive. The “relaxation” pill, for instance, contains an herbal relaxant and is soft and chewy, intended to be used like a cigarette or chewing gum, while the “go crazy” pill reacts with the user’s dental fillings, keeping her alert despite jet lag or other travel fatigue.
