Biography

 

Christopher JanneyPublic Artist Christopher Janney is described as one of the most prolific and influential artists working with sound and light today. In 1984, he was named by Esquire Magazine, as one of the Americans under-40, most likely to change the world. His recently published book Architecture of the Air, and his latest Broward County public artwork, Shadow Boxing, further illustrate how Janney’s innovative use of sound, light and interactive technology in architecture has done much to bear out that predication.

An artist, architect and composer, Janney received a BA in architecture and visual arts from Princeton University, and a MS in environmental art from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has studied percussion and performed since the age of 14. He has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Graduate School of Design at Harvard, and has been a visiting professor at Cooper Union in New York City since 1991.
