i/thee is a family and friends design collaborative with projects around the world. Our designs celebrate the co-sentience of everything in the environment; living and non-living; past and present; I and thee.
Where some wish to draw distinctions, we wish to shed light on what we all have in common: to demonstrate that the appearance of difference is an illusion. Within this universe, there are not many things but just one thing: one life, one love, one eternally temporary moment. The world is not made up of separate entities and forces that sometimes overlap; rather, all things are born from the same circle with one boundary—a perfectly overlapping venn diagram containing all there is.
Our clients and collaborators include Teva, the Imperial Valley Desert Museum, Hello Wood Studio, Space Saloon, the Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives, Global Inheritance, Roundhouse Platform, Oakes Creek Ranch and more.
