This is my home
by Nicola De Rosbo-Davies
This project invited and continues to invite people from all around the world to submit their writing, art and photography which explores the theme of home and what home means to them. Nicola would like to continue to invite people to submit entries, as she feel this could be an ongoing project, with room to grow. These contributions are included in a series of handmade “junk journals” which are journals made with a range of different pages of all shapes and sizes including old book pages and other recycled materials. All three journals in the series include a window in the cover, as though we are having a peek into different perspectives of home, even if home is not just about having walls around you.

Running time: 18mins approx.
