“Claire works on the boundaries between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional {…}. across unbounded spaces is a fragmented image of a sky, where we travel from the clouds into space and the layers of earth’s atmosphere. It is a digital collage that doesn’t display reality, but an image of space. The image is transformed when we walk up the stairs and abandon familiar clouds for a darker, vaguer vision of space, becoming ever more fleeting and fragmented. By displaying the work on the stairs of Gerðarsafn, it creates an illusion of depth and gains the third dimension as part of the exhibition space.” 
Text by curators Brynja Sveinsdóttir and Cecilie Cedet Gaihede for the catalogue of Skúlptúr/Skúlptúr
