Eli’s work expresses the psychology of precarity through transformative landscapes of potential violence.

She creates memory machines by exploiting the technology of affect, intimacy and narrative. Her constructed environments all explore the ongoing process of construction, deconstruction and reconstruction of identity. Her mythology is comprised of feminist fairy tales, domestic crime scenes and horror-movie lullabies. Eli's visual art practice is predicated on a belief in the importance of testimony. Her work is a collection of fictional poems that resonate as true due to their autobiographical integrity.

Eli's interest in precarity stems from an autobiographical immersion in the process of involuntary identity renewal. Her personal history can be described as a series of transformative states.
