This artwork is on view in the Walker exhibition The Living Years: Art after 1989. The text below is a quote from the artist, reproduced for the artwork's label for that exhibition.

“The felts are stolen death metal logos and are to me about the abstraction of text as a sculptural form. On the other hand, they are about growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey, which I guess could be considered nostalgic. But when I lived there, I could always feel an underlying presence of something sinister and I was always expecting something bad to happen.” —Jay Heikes
