Between 2007 – 2012 AIR worked with Islington Council Arts Team and the Archway Town Centre Management Group to commission new works that explored a perceived darkness in Archway. Four commissions were realised: Hillary Powell Light Years Away, Jane Watt Trip the Light Fantastic, David Batchelor Big Rock Candy Fountain, Ruth Ewan How to Make Archway Tower Disappear.

Alight was funded by Arts Council England, Transport for London, Mayor's Outer London Fund. The generous support of many Archway businesses and residents is acknowledged on the various works pages.
