The artist's large-scale resin and ceramic casts and sculptures, which can reach heights of nearly 3-metres, exist somewhere between image and object. The works, which are occasionally inlayed and decorated with miscellaneous such as chicken bones, notebook spirals, shoelaces and brannock devices, are fused with more traditional art materials including earthenware, rattan, urethane, and brass. Her wall-based relief works are non-functional proposals for places and objects that favour fantasy over utility, gorging our imagination with dreamy recreations of books, fireplaces, clothing, mirrors, charcuterie boards and bathroom cabinets. Ingber considers merging material together through casting "the ultimate form of adhesion" which allows her to "glue things together, both physically and symbolically”.

Ingber believes images and objects have the potential to become symbols, even if that symbolism is created through composition and texture. Mundanity, language, and memory serve as the artist's departure point, both being tangible yet indistinct, allowing for meaning and para-fictions to be created from them. This creates the feeling and imagery of familiarity whilst leaving ambiguity to fill in the gaps, welcoming its multiplicity to be more than one thing at once. This reflects the artist's material approach to her work, combining multiple ingredients to successfully harmonise into a whole.

Intentionally choosing to use a greyed and dusty colour palette, Ingber wants to provide her work with a sense of use and life, suggesting an attached, unknown history. When seen as a series, the works intentionally seem as if they belong and exist together, having shared sentimental or personal associations from Ingber's life growing up in Rio de Janeiro and her current home in Brooklyn, US.

The artist's work on paper mixes patterns with faint figurative elements and outlines. They are more abstract than her sculptural work, but similarly employ methods of collaging and assemblage, often overlaying what seems like two or more separate designs and drawings on one page, as an investigation of spatial relationships and perception.
