The Manual for Urban Projection (MUP) is a resource guide for urban projection concepts, strategies, and technologies. It combines observations by urban projection thinkers and practitioners with on-the-ground learnings from the authors’ collective experiences with urban projection, public curation, and other art adventures.

CUIR’s running list of favorite projectors.
CUIR builds on years of practice with the MAW projection collective.
MAW is a vehicle for activating public spaces with large-scale projections of sound and video. MAW develops software, hardware and methodologies for participatory urban projection, and helps artists and community organizations utilize these instruments to creatively claim and transform public spaces. MAW disseminates these instruments and works with artists interested in technology to promote mobile public projection.
