Part of a larger piece, including "Conversation", in Chancellor's Court on the campus of the University of Leeds

By sculptural environmental artist Lorna Green in 1995. 'Meet, Sit and Talk' is sited in Chancellor's Court at the University of Leeds. The piece is made up of three circles of seven sandstone boulders with a larger one in the centre, and each stone features a rectangle of polished black granite to reflect sky and sun.

Each circle sits amongst a garden scheme designed by Allan Ruff* and based on the flow of a river at different times of the year as described by the changing colours of the plants and trees within it.

Lorna Green, based in Cheshire, works mainly in public art and environmental projects the world over, and uses all types of materials, including wood, stone, sand, flowers, and water. Her work is a mix of temporary and permanent, mainly outdoor pieces.

* Allan Ruff is a landscape architect and author of several books and publications on landscape gardening and its history.
