John Wynne makes work for museums, galleries, public spaces and radio: it ranges from large-scale site specifid installations to delicate sculptural works; from architectural sound drawings to flying radios and composed documentaries that hover between documentation and abstraction. His Installation for 300 speakers, Pianola and vacuum cleaner was the first piece of sound art in the Saatchi collection London and was the centrepiece of Saatchi Gallery's 2010 summer show, which attracted over half a million visitors. He has worked with speakers of endangered languages in the Kalahari Desert and in Canada, with heart and lung transplant patients in the UK, and with young members of the LGBTQ+ community in Botswana. He is Emeritus Professor of Sound Art at the University of the Arts London and has a PhD from Goldsmiths College, University of London.
