    A tribute to dreamers. PART IV :
    Restaged
    9 C-prints 100 x 72 cm
    2012

    The photograph represent the reenactment of the transport of the Cedar IV rocket, moving along the streets from Dbayeh to Haigazian University, in the very heart of Beirut. Restaged goes back to the act itself without resorting to digital software, which “reenact” the transport of the rocket itself. Using a silhouette in white wood of the sculpture reproduced in two dimensions which passes through the town, resorting to the same device as before, the idea is to replay what was replayed, to find again the trace of a trace. The speed of the rocket’s passage captures ephemeral traces of strange appearances inthe city.
