EIC is composed of three collaborating artists: Zachary Norman, Jason Lukas, and Aaron Hegert. A Concept is a Brick exhibition is the end product of the group's mutual collaboration, making, and remaking of the images. As the group notes, "the resulting images, hybrids that combine photography and 3D rendering, explore the many ways an object or an idea can change its meaning depending on how it is produced and presented: A brick can be used to build a powerful structure, or it can be thrown through a window." Creating textures, spaces, and voids the EIC create windows into realms that question space, meaning, and photographic processes.

Norman is a visiting lecturer and research associate at the University of Notre Dame, he has also exhibited with the group and others including at Present Company, Brooklyn, New York.
