Pedro Reyes

Pedro Reyes        November 12             Christian Espinoza

Pedro Reyes is an artist that uses sculpture and performance.

The project I know him most for is a project called "Disarm".

This piece involved many destroyed and dismantled weapons that Pedro got a team together to make into musical instruments.

The instruments were playable, but people had to take hours of time to begin to learn how. So Pedro constructed them to be automated and play pieces that people helped him compose.

There is a lot of irony and creativity in this project because he is using weapons, which are destructive, to make beautiful music,

I believe this was worth sharing because it was a unique idea and was very satisfying to see developed and eventually finished.
