How does the Meme The World Project work? My goal is to distribute mugs to people around the world. Each mug has instructions printed on the bottom: Use cup, Photograph your experience, and Pass the mug to a new person. Participants then upload their photos to the MTW blog archiving their experience along with hundreds of others. You can then follow the path of your cup using it's unique 'Cup ID' tag.
What is this project for? Meme The World is for fun. This is an art piece that aims to collect photographs of participant's diverse ideas, cultures, and environments in one place where everyone is connected by a shared experience.

Risks and challenges
The Meme the word project has been tested on a small scale which has allowed me to address potential risks early on. That said, one potential challenge may be managing a LARGE number of contributions from people who wish to receive MTW mugs. The dates I have listed with each reward are for the completion of the minimum goal to complete the project. Producing more than 200 cups may require more time. I possess the experience, materials, facilities, and network of wonderful artists necessary for me complete this project as quickly as possible! Please inquire with any questions you have regarding the execution and completion of this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
