Street artist Hot Tea has been busy on a new work, ‘LOST & FOUND’ in his home town of Minneapolis. It’s a simple concept and as you can see serves a public good; a vacant tennis court with no net turned into a useful amenity for the locals to use. Here’s what he said about it:
It sat there empty for years LOST with no purpose. I came up with the idea to create my own net using nothing but yarn giving back the tennis court its original purpose. (FOUND)
I am very proud of this piece because I have been trying to find a way to merge my two passions together, installation art (street art) and interacting with people. After the net was complete I rounded up some of the local youth to come try it out, tennis racquet’s and all. They loved it! Mission complete.
Who would have thought yarn could give so many people pleasure.
