Knitting Machine: To celebrate American Independence Day, artist David Cole will be using heavy construction equipment—a pair of John Deere excavators, a Genie, and 20-foot knitting needles—to knit a massive American flag. When it's completed July 3, the oversized flag, which, according to MASSMoCA's press release "can be seen as both a celebratory gesture of pride and a commentary on America's role in world affairs," will be folded into a traditional triangle roughly the size of a Volkswagen Beetle.
