'Light Years Away was created after a winter of skating and laughter under the brutalist Archway Tower. Thousands of animated photographs capture movement as light lines, people as ghosts, and a futuristic vision of the site tinged with a gritty, ephemeral beauty.' Hilary Powell, 2009
Light Years Away was projected back into the space of its making onto a perfect pre-existing 16:9 urban cinema screen (the end white wall of Hill House) completed by a roller disco below with mobile sound systems and free skate hire based in the local cheque exchange.
Hilary was commissioned in 2007 for Alight in partnership with Islington Council with funding from Transport for London.
