This project celebrated the publication of Momeni’s Manual for Urban Projection (a Kickstarter funded project) but creating a participatory urban projection intervention at Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn, NY on July 31, 2016.  For a few hours in the afternoon, festival attendees were invited to make drawings of statue-like figures, standing on a pedestal. Using Dranimate, an interactive gestural animation system developed at ArtFab, we transformed the participants drawings into gesturally controlled virtual puppets, projected atop the monument at the center of the park.
