An article on The Creators Project introduces Pedro Reyes, an artist who works in dangerous territories. For his latest project, “Disarm,” he traveled through places like Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, where gang violence and forced disappearances abound. Reyes aims to make his homeland a better place through art, and more specifically, by turning weapons into musical instruments and installations. Watch an introductory video here, and for more ideas on repurposing weapons, check out these DIY bullet earplugs we featured a while back.
