    Elements for a monument.

    Cedar IV: A Reconstitution is a scale reproduction of the over 8-meter long rocket, differing from the original in its white color only. Cedar IV: A Reconstitution traversed through the streets of Beirut to arrive at Hagazian University where it all began and where it is permanently installed. It conjures the temporal distance between the rocket’s presence and our own with its current evocation of missiles. It is only within the territory of the university that the rocket is recognized for what it is, an artistic and scientific project.
