Installation using 84 Miles of coloured string by Hot Tea
“Letting Go” by Hot Tea (Eric Rieger). This interpretation of the sun is made of 84 miles of coloured string. The piece is currently on view at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Would love to lie down and read a book under this thing.

Watch a time-lapse of the piece being constructed below!
