Swenson, Kirsten. "Catherine Borg: Contemporary Arts Center" March 1, 2009, p.151-152.

LAS VEGAS. Much art out of Las Vegas is about Las Vegas, reflecting, perhaps, the challenge of adapting as a permanent resident to a place built for transients.

Kelly, Danielle. "In Vacuum: Catherine Borg explores the terror of empty space" Oct 9, 2008, p.57.

Catherine Borg’s new exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Collective is scary. It’s called Untitled, the

Artist Catherine Borg's nearly 11-minute digital video installation titled "I only have stars for you; you only have stars for me" stands as perhaps one of the most disturbing accounts of a hotel-casino implosion ever documented -- not because of what is captured visually (we've all seen an implosion before), but because of the film's audio track, which the artist conveniently transcribes and presents as subtitles.
