Dave Cole is an awesome artist who lives in Providence. As part of a show of his work at Mass MOCA, he spent the 4th of July weekend knitting an American Flag in the museum courtyard. Sounds pretty normal, until you find out that the knitting needles he used where two giant telephone poles…and that the knitting was being done by two excavating machines. One of my favorite things about this show was how the knitting machine brought a whole new crowd into the gallery. Word had spread through the knitting community, and a lot of the knitters who came to see their craft performed on a mega scale were not people who usually made trips to contemporary art museums.
