Meet Yarn Street Artist HoTTea

Drawn to Minneapolis artist HoTTea's inventive and non-destructive take on street art, Threadless offered the Minneapolis College of Art and Design graduate $2,000 to fund the project of his choosing. Miles of yarn and 12 hours later, his inspiring transformation of a derelict tennis court reminds us to always look on the bright side. Created a short video documentary of yarn street artist HoTTea a.k.a. Eric Rieger. A small crew and myself interviewed HoTTEa and filmed him creating his installation in an abandoned tennis court. Beyond the editing and shooting I created the soundtrack for the piece. Shot by: Collin James Diederich, Craig Shimala, Sean Dorgan Edit by: Collin James Diederich Music by: robotboot “Dark Time” - https://soundcloud.com/robotboot/dark-time ​Client: Threadless, This is Colossal
