LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 26: Artist Pedro Reyes holds one of his musical instruments sculpted from recycled guns at the Lisson Gallery on March 26, 2013 in London, England. Mexican artist Pedro Reyes received 6,700 destroyed weapons from the Mexican government from which he sculpted two groups of instruments. The first, a series titled Imagine, is an orchestra of fifty instruments, from flutes to string and percussion instruments, designed to be played live. The second, Disarm, is an installation of mechanical musical instruments, which can either be automated or played live by an individual operator using a laptop computer or midi keyboard.
