Sandstone monoliths in "Conversation"

By sculptural environmental artist Lorna Green in 1999. "Conversation" links and relates to her "Meet, Sit and Talk" piece in the surrounding landscaped (by Allan Ruff*) gardens of Chancellors Court at the University of Leeds. The whole project gained two commendations for landscape in the 2000 Leeds Architecture Awards.

These stone monoliths also include circles of polished granite, which reflects the sun and sky.

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.
