Where Children Sleep
What does your bedroom look like? What is on your walls, in your desk, and in your closet? What does this all say about you?

Mollison writes this about his new book:
"When Fabrica asked me to come up with an idea for engaging with children’s rights, I found myself thinking about my bedroom: how significant it was during my childhood, and how it reflected what I had and who I was."
Your phyisical surroundings can tell a story about you. Try visually documenting your room, or house, or your grandparents house. Chances are that over time these spaces will change.
