 Artists Cheryl Hamilton & Michael Vandermeer form the artistic collaboration that is ie:

They believe that art can serve to inspire and provide a moment of celebration and community interaction when placed outside the gallery walls and into public space.

Cheryl and Michael work with themes that involve nature and physics, combining their different backgrounds: art and science respectively. Their differing perspectives are sometimes humorously described as imperial vs metric. This difference allows them to create an exchange about a project right from the beginning. As they continue to generate discussion they eliminate the ideas that fall short of continued dialogue. This allows them to create artworks that sustain conversation.

Their artwork is also a physical intersection between philosophy and craft.
As artists that fabricate and install their own work, practicalities such as material choices, production schedules and production techniques are considered from the moment of an idea’s germination. 
Their pride and focus on production techniques and high quality craftsmanship lead to results that capture the attention of viewers who may not normally engage in conceptual artwork.
