See, watch and hear illegal firearms as musical instruments in Pedro Reyes’ ambitious installation. Reyes was offered the crushed revolvers, shot-guns and machine-guns by the Mexican government following their confiscation and public destruction. Disarm (Mechanized) will play at automated intervals.
