Anything That Gives Off Light

Part of Edinburgh Festival 2016

Pupils at schools across Edinburgh took part in a project to create poetry and personalised figurines, which formed a bright display outside the Scottish Parliament.

The poems resemble trees in their physical appearance.  This creativity is mesostic, a form of poetry where a letter from a key word appears somewhere in each line, providing a central trunk.


The mass of figurines, all in yellow, congregate on stands in a pool.  The chaotic crowd consists of a mass of models.  Each one gesticulates and shimmies in a pose chosen to reflect the character of the young artist.
