emcee (em =”m” and cee=”c” - or “mc”, short for metachat) is a collection of art projects by metachat members, often based on the idea of an “exquisite corpse” in which each player completes or adds to the image created by the player before him, based only on a tiny bit of visual information. New emcee collaborations are organized and announced on the main site; any metachat member can play, and we sometimes organize according to skill level. A guide to how our exquisite corpses are created can be found here.
