Alison Cornyn , Sue Johnson is a participatory investigation of the American criminal justice system. Since its launch in 2001, has tackled issues such as immigration, welfare reform, class bias and the workplace. Modules were added to the series with first-person stories, interactive data and a forum for discussion. The project uses 360-degree panoramas to place viewers in the center of a prison cell or cell block or living room or judge’s chamber while listening to intimate portraits captured through audio diaries. Interactive data games invite visitors to put themselves in the big picture. In one scenario, participants answer a series of questions aimed at challenging assumptions about who commits crime and why. Another questions one’s philosophy on punishment and behavior.
