Simon Hollington & Kypros Kyprianou's installation, The Nightwatchman (2008), featured in the exhibition Nuclear: Art and Radioactivity (2008).

The installation explored the intricacies and ambivalent legacy of nuclear power through two commissioned artistic works: Chris Oakley's Half-Life (2008), and Simon Hollington & Kypros Kyprianou's installation which traced 'changing perceptions of the nuclear power industry over its 50 year history through a single immersive narrative environment, blending fact and fiction into a darkly humorous journey through hard-nosed PR and spin to a logical hysteria.'
