Opportunities to build business card Menger sponge

megamenger 1

Many of you may remember the Level 3 Menger sponge made entirely of folded business cards built through crowdsourcing by Dr. Jeannine Mosely in 2005. Dr. Mosely is the creator of the method of linking and paneling business card cubes to build complex structures.

Now you have the opportunity to join in the fun! During the week of October 20-26, 2014 more than twenty different worldwide build locations will each assemble a Level 3 Menger sponge folded and assembled from business cards. Together these locations will form the first virtual Level 4 Menger sponge build in history. The distributed Level 4 sponge will come together virtually through live streaming events on Saturday and Sunday, October 25 and 26.

MegaMenger is a gigantic and historic project that needs many local volunteers at each site. If you are interested in participating in a local build, visit www.megamenger.com to find out how to contact the leaders of a build near you. See the list of sites below.

All of these sites need your expert help and would love to be contacted if you are interested in joining their builds. There will also be many Level 2 builds which you can join or even host, if you are not near one of the thirteen U.S. sites. To sign up as a new Level 2 mini-site or even as a Level 1 micro-site, contact laurataalman [at] gmail.com.
