You may recall that Stefa posted some months ago about our adventures in the streets of Edinburgh with super-talented conceptual textile artist Rocio Jungenfeld. It’s taken a while to update you, but we can now let you see some of the fruits of the collaboration between Rocio and a handful of our talented this collection poets!
Here, Rocio talks with Morgan Downie about the concept of street weaving.
Rocio worked with poets Anna Dickie and Lauren Pope to create weaves of their poems, Same place different view and Southside II and III respectively. The resulting films are below!
Rocio also worked with Morgan Downie and Priscilla Chueng Nainby to create films based on their this collection poems. These will be online very soon!
Want to make a film for us, or find out more about street weaves or Rocio’s work? Email us at film[@]thiscollection.org or check out our Submissions page!

leave it on the window sill
this half emptied cup of Rooibos
Belfast sink choker full
hot tap’s running slow
Fairy liquid’s finishing
leave it on this window sill
let it air into stain
stay and wait and see
on the right to Arthur Seat
twinkling stars budding on bare branches
on the left to the Castle
hot lemons scenting into thin air
at the centre lies the Meadows
where they coalesced into a heavenly scroll
as bubbles escalating into miracles
and many nights to come
a Rooibos stain
a fairy ephemeral
a witnessed dream
