The idea of escaping from daily life is a romance with which many visitors to the Hebrides try to capture their own snapshot. This results in an incomplete and idealised representation of the islands on the internet, acting as a prelude or substitute to the actual reality of the place.

A selection of images found on google were commissioned to be painted by a company in China and posted over. E mail correspondence and google images with their URLs are composed in a book and exhibited with the paintings at An Lanntair, Stornoway.
