Yarn is being used as a material for nondestructive street art all over the world and now vita.mn shows us how Minneapolis is getting in on the action: artist Eric Reiger has been threading up his signature name, HOTTEA, all over town.

One word: Litter.

HOTTEA is more than just a name. It’s a combination of two parts of a puzzle: a lifetime of art and a deeper, more personal symbolism. “The HOTTEA project embodies the similarities and differences in all of us,” Rieger explains. “I’ve always had hot tea at memorable moments in my life. Combining the two words created a new meaning, just like the dynamics between two people. We are always growing as individuals, but together our possibilities are endless.”
I was kind of choco-vanilla on this whole story till I got to the above statement.

Important moments in my life make me go straight for the tea.

Must be legit. Vita.mn’s all over it.

For reasons unknown to me, yarn spotting became a big deal this year, as if HOTTEA hasn’t been around for years. I do have to credit these recent sightings with changing my mind about it, though; mild ambivalence has given way to pure, uncut apathy.

The dude’s approaching 30 years old. There’s no future in writing HOTTEA in yarn.

I told you all these street “artists” were hipsters, but you didn’t belive me!

This guy’s been putting stuff up outside my house for a couple years I think. Last summer he made some ducks. Yesterday he made a new HOTTTEA but in italics. Looks like Helvitica narrow italic. I wish he’d come back and make more ducks.

I heard he was going to use a palindrome but got pissed of when ZeroreZ took all the thunder.
