Knitting Machine


Artist Dave Cole is known in the art world for making knitted objects out of various extreme materials like fiberglass, lead, kevlar, and porcelain. In addition to these projects, he's usually daring himself to make ever larger, ever crazier work. All of this has culminated in The Knitting Machine, in which our hero knits oversized objects with the use of two backhoes and some very large steel needles. Dave and the Knitting Machine just finished an exhibition at MassMoCA where he knitted a huge (car dealership huge!) American flag.
