Gemini Business Park was chosen on grounds of its ‘aspirational’ positioning in an underdeveloped borough of Leeds. Five managing directors were approached by the director of uk Corporate Sculpture Consultancy, Chris Evans, and given complementary advice on visualising how they might represent their company in a three-dimensional form. The products of these meetings were to be installed together as a sculpture park, spread out on lawns that would cover the car park.
Besides the production of five graphic interpretations in a series of screenprints (depicted on the following pages), external artists were commissioned by Evans to realise artist’s impressions of Gemini Sculpture Park.
