    Restaged

    The photograph captures the reenactment of the transported Cedar IV rocket, moving through the streets of Beirut, from Dbayeh to Haigazian University. This replication goes back to the act itself without resorting to digital software, which a�?reenactsa�? the transport of the rocket itself. It uses a two dimensional silhouette in white wood of the sculpture, which passes through the town, resorting to the same device as before. The intent is to replay what was replayed, to rediscover the trace of a trace. The speed of the rocketa��s passage captures ephemeral traces of strange appearances in the city.
