Emcee C.M, Master of None or Colin McMullan, is pursing a variety of practices aimed at building a vital sense of community and mutual responsibility on a human scale, through a series of self-organized meals, furniture, architecture, vehicles, workshops, talks, tours publications, films and exhibitions. This voluntary civic work is about approaching his immediate environment with generosity and wonder. A calling to develop sites and systems of social exchange informs his work. he believes strongly that the answers to all of the complex, layered problems that confront us individually, collectively and globally, are really lying at the tips of our fingers. Our drive to work, to improvise, to constructively innovate our experiences of the world, promises a perpetual condition of hope.
Odd Jobs, 2012 Edition of 200. A handset letterpress, an accordion book masquerading as a business card, and original list poem displayed in homemade business card holder. This is my favorite piece, it includes cheesemonger, calligrapher, deal breaker and sitter.This huge list of past occupations and experiences is so appropriate because Emcee’s life reflects his work; it shows great variety in medium and approach but with an overarching spirit of playfulness.
