Dave Cole: The Knitting Machine

The Knitting Machine is a uniquely American sculptural installation presented by Dave Cole. It comprised two excavators specially fitted with massive 20 foot knitting needles. The product of The Knitting Machine is an oversized American flag – a flag which can be seen as both a celebratory gesture of pride and a commentary on America’s role in world affairs.

When the flag was removed from The Knitting Machine it was folded into the traditional flag triangle and was on display in a presentation case which Cole described as “slightly smaller than a Volkswagen Beetle”, accompanied by the 20′ knitting needles, and a video of the knitting process.
