Eiko Soga works on intangible elements that affect both individual consciousness and social milieu. Within a context of social politics and alternative culture, she investigates spoken word, fiction, and empathy.

An important part of her research and process is to create sensory and geographic descriptions of the world through looking at the interrelationship of people, object, nature, and agency. This results in works in arrayed media such as installation, sound, sculpture and video essay.
