Just like the changing light from morning to nightfall of any day, the Liquid Light works change with the viewer’s movements, each one opening and closing like the pupil of an eye. Every degree of movement reveals yet another image where the game between artwork and viewer endlessly unfolds.

Mia Pinjuh writes: “With her customary skill in manipulating materials and mediums, Borgelt has found the ideal means of expressing abstract concepts. The full, mesmerizing effect of the cut canvas works in the Liquid Light series is only evident when the viewer moves around the work, this movement itself evoking the orbits of the planets. The fine, intricate strips are cut in such a way that with every incremental movement, the image shifts and changes.”
