Between Life and Death: Stories from John Vorster Square is a unique interactive product that allows users to explore John Vorster Square - now known as Johannesburg Central Police Station - and experience what it must have been like for the prisoners who were detained and interrogated there during the apartheid era. The immersive architecture creates new layered narratives by juxtaposing historical and contemporary audio-visual material, photographs, documents and personal accounts from former security policemen and detainees.
