Tennis Court Yarn Installation by HoTTea


There’s a long (actually, probably not very long) history of artists weaving things into fences. Minneapolis artist Eric Rieger (also known as HoTTea) works with miles of coloured yarn to create street art installations. He recently transformed this neglected tennis court into a giant  multi-coloured arc structure.

The project reminds me a bit of You are Amazing, an installation we put together on the fence of a pedestrian walkway over Windsor’s E.C. Row in 2009. Our project was more 2D in nature and was more text-based, but the act of using fence as a support structure is something we wanted to explore (and might again some day).
