John Lefelhocz comments: "What holds us back? Where are the limits? How fast can an aluminum rocket-propelled plane go? Can strips of aluminum be woven to make fabric? What is the maximum number of strips of bacon that can be held within a BLT? And don't forget, barriers are meant to be broken."
This is one in a series in which John Lefelhocz explored the limits of what he considered a quilt.He explains, "I wove my own fabric like material from wide strips of aluminum. I stitched with non traditional thread. I illuminated the works from the back side."
