About the art
"...a creative force in several dimensions... She not only writes music (including avant-
garde opera), but also orchestrates the entire production of those operas. Additionally she
makes installations, drawings, collages, video animations and digital art. Samples of her
genius are in this show and are very exciting to see. Elodie’s highly sophisticated use of
today’s advanced technology has opened a new dimension in the art world. Her curious and
alert mind restlessly searches for a new language for art. "
