knitting as a hobby seems out of date – now it has become art
This video features work by the artist Dave Cole. The piece is called “The Knitting Machine”.
Commentary from Design Boom – ‘The knitting machine’ sees two excavators positioned across from one another, each one fitted with a 20 foot long knitting needle. together, they produce an oversized american flag, the performance seen both as a celebration of pride, while also being interpreted as a commentary of america’s role in world affairs.
