13,000 Strands of Colorful Yarn Dangle for Artist HOT TEA's Latest Installation

Located inside the Mall of America.

Eric Rieger aka HOT TEA has garnered acclaim for his non-destructive street installations made of colorful yarn, spray paint, and stencils. The Minnesota-based artist has recently completed a new installation inside the Mall of America in Bloomington and it may be his largest one yet.
