“Disarm” is a project that Mexican artist Pedro Reyes created in collaboration with COCOLAB. Within this project a fundamental transformation takes place: agents of violence are transformed into life and creation tools. Weapons lead to the generation of musical instruments. For the project, Reyes was able to choose from about 6,700 guns that were turned in or seized by the army and police in Ciudad Juárez, a city about 1.3 million people that averaged about 10 killings a day at the height of violence.

A lady enters the ladies room and gets carried away into an endless choreography of self criticism in front of the mirror following the other ladies.
