TEMPORARY RECONSTRUCTION

I had been working for seven days on reconstruction of partially preserved Roman mosaic from 2nd century. I used small colored paper squares (1x1cm) to fill in missing parts. However the reconstruction was temporary, not only because of impermanent and fragile material I used, but also because I didn’t fix paper squares to the floor.

Sedam dana radim na rekonstrukciji djelomično očuvanog rimskog mozaika iz 2. st. Papirićima u boji (1×1 cm) popunjavam dijelove koji nedostaju. No rekonstrukcija je privremena, i to ne samo zbog netrajnog i krhkog materijala, nego i zbog toga što papiriće ne lijepim, već ih samo polažem na pod.
