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.
