Possible to boot iMac from MBA SSD?

Is it possible to connect my Mac Book Air to my 2011 iMac in some way and then boot the iMac from the MacBook Air boot drive and basically use the iMac as an external monitor off the MacBook Air and run all the Air software and data etc.? Could I use all the peripheral devices attached to the iMac - external drive, usb wireless keyboard, usb wireless mouse?
