Hi, this is Mr. John iTunes, the owner of iTunes. I’m just calling to inform you that your new songs “No New Friends” and “Woke Up In A Bugatti” are selling like crazy, and also that we want to put your new album, that a cursory google search has told me is called “We Out Here” on my company’s selling platform, that I founded, iTunes, ASAP!
You should also know that your label “We The Best Music” is on fire! If you have time we’d like to setup a meeting in pers— your yacht? Next week? Great! I’ll have my assistant set it up. Look forward to seeing you then!”
American artist Dave Cole transforms existing machinery into awesome new devices with functions completely unrelated to their original purpose. In 2012 he transformed a 22,000 pound steam roller into The Music Box. Instead of flattening surfaces the machine now plays the “Star Spangled Banner.”
Though Cole stripped most of the weight out of the compactor to make the sculpture more manageable, it still weighs in at 2,000 pounds. The sculpture was commissioned by the Cleveland Institute of Art.
Back in 2005 Dave Cole created The Knitting Machine. Two enormous excavators were fitted with 20-foot-long knitting needles and positioned across from each other. Working together they knitted an oversized American flag. Click here to watch video footage of The Knitting Machine.
