James Grayson Sinding’s letters on Tollefson Plaza

James Sinding’s word-based installations jubilantly proclaim the durability (at least in physical terms) of the written word. Last year, he dumped thousands of alphabet letters in Tollefson Plaza for his wildly popular Spaceworks Tacoma installation, Letters . In 2011, he is riffing on the concept with a project involving whole words and phrases. At his residency space at 1114 Pacific Avenue, Sinding can make and store “thousands of words like the ones people place on their refrigerator….[and] keep my couch in the living room instead of moving it to the dining room to make room for letters.” He is also pursuing work on a group of wood sculptures. www.jamesgraysonsinding.blogspot.com
