Interview with Clare Strand. ... 
Clare Strand: Signs of a Struggle ... 
In Signs of a Struggle, Eugene Ionescos Utopian City beset by a serial killer in the play Tueur Sans Gages informs the forensic documenting of lurking issues concealed in the British New Town.
(Commissioned by Fotonet South) 
Clare Strand: The Betterment Rooms - Devices For Measuring Achievement: ... 
Frank and Lillian Gilbrethıs corpus of photographic Work Studies formed the research basis of The Betterment Rooms - Devices for measuring Achievment. By resurrecting the Gilbrethıs laboratory, 'The Betterment Room', Strands' contemporary participants now encounter a twenty first century work study equipped with appropriate mechanisms and attachments, set against grids and clocks.
The Betterment Room Devices for Measuring Achievement Cyclegraph series becomes an attempt to analyse and determine the trajectories of Strands own activity throughout the making of the work. Using the Gilbrethian method of strapping mini electrodes to her hands and employing a long shutter speed, Strand records her own movements.
(commissioned by the IPRN and Folkwang Museum, Essen, Germany)
