Here’s a story about turning devices of death, into instruments of inspiration.
Pedro Reyes, who lives in Mexico City salvaged 6,700 guns, knives, firearms & weapons which had been seized by local authorities and were scheduled to be buried and discarded. So what do you do with that amount of metal, tin and steel? If you’re Reyes, you create a project called Imagine & reach out to 6 talented musicians to transform the objects from instruments of death, to instruments of entertainment. Over 14 days, they chopped, sized, welded, hammered and moulded different weapons into 50 workable instruments.
