    Elements for a monument.

    Cedar IV: A Reconstitution is a scale reproduction of the original 8-meter long rocket, differing only in its white color. Cedar IV: A Reconstitution traversed through the streets of Beirut to return to Haigazian University a�� its place of origin a�� where it is permanently installed. With its evocation of missiles, it conjures the temporal distance between the rocketa��s presence and our own. It is only within the confines of the university that the rocket can be recognized for what it is: an artistic and scientific project.
