Pedro Reyes The Manufacture of Surplus Realities

Mexican artist and architect Pedro Reyes discusses four of his recent projects: Baby Marx, a film where puppets explain the history of ideas in politics and economics; the Urban Genome Project, a mobile forum that maps the decision-making process in cities; Mutantes, the translation of literary texts into other mediums, ranging from algebra to cooking; and Palas por Pistolas, a campaign in which voluntary donated weapons were melted into shovels to plant trees.
