minneapolis-based graffiti artist hottea has conceived ‘letting go’. the large-scale installation spans across two floors and
hangs boldly at the minneapolis institute of arts, meticulously created over three months from 14,000 individual strands of yarn at 32 ft long each.
the method of fabrication generates a dense and textural outcome, calculated to have used over 82 miles of the material.
the piece celebrates hottea’s interpretation of the sun, most recognizable by the vivid fusion of orange, yellow and red colors dominating the work.
