SkypeLab is a creative research collaboration between Reutlingen University, Germany, RMIT University, Melbourne and East China Normal University, Shanghai that explores the role of drawing and portraiture in identity perception within the public space of Skype.  Over 12 months Clare contacted and talked to six international artists she had never met before over Skype.  These conversations, and the blind contour drawings created during the conversations, were then turned into a series of finished works exhibited at the Städtische Galerie Reutlingen in 2016.   Clare’s response used the international language of cross-stitch to explore how women, for centuries have used the medium of textiles to maintain and develop relationships across distance.
