During its 25th year, an Lanntair commissioned artist and sailor, Ian Stephen, to make an exhibition which would seek links with other Island partners, in Scotland and out along the sea-road. A collaborative project with other individual artists and other partner organisations on Scottish islands, on mainland Scotland and in England. The geographical range of the work is from Brittany to Iceland by way of Orkney, Fair Isle and Shetland en route. There are also detours out to St Kilda and to the Baltic, as a celebration of the arts centres' continuing links with communities on Finnish islands.

Pat Law's salvage installation symbolises connection and unification between cultures and land masses. It consists of an object found on remote glacier in Iceland, paired with a found object found on a remote beach on the far north west of Scotland and is accompanied by two paintings of lava, graphite and glacial water.
