The installation, Stories from the City, delves into the world of Ten Days, a political thriller written by Gilian Slovo, as part of this year's Cityreads event.
Inside a mocked-up police control centre, visitors can view evidence from different crime scenes set in the book's first 72 hours.
Each of these items can be placed on a control panel to unlock different pieces of sound from the Ten Days audiobook, narrated by Joe Jameson.
In a community area, visitors can leave messages on wooden boards inspired by those that covered shop windows following London's 2011 riots.
Five-thousand copies of the book are available to local libraries and all prisons in the city. 'Evidence Booths' – minature versions of the installation – will tour 10 libraries in areas such as Balham, Hackney and Barking until 1 May.
Cityreads is also giving away 100 special editions of Ten Days – plus codes for a free audio download – in locations that were worst affected by the 2011 riots. The promotion kicked off yesterday (10 April) and will last for 10 days.
The installation was masterminded by creative agency Stand+Stare and consultant Jon Slack.
Now in its fifth year, Cityreads is a celebration of literature that encourages Londoners to read the same book.
