This project is based on the functionality of the Swiss Knife, which is basically a pocket toolbox. Fort he creation of this piece, Reyes searched flea markets in Mexico City and shopped for objects that could be modified, change positions, and can also fit together in a spontaneous juxtaposition. These juxtapositions create a set of meanings and call for new narratives that are the results from the interaction with the public. For instance, and in order to frame the work, one can out out a spoon, a telescope, a flute, or a human bone.
