Margareta Bergman’s being transported And rapt in secret studies is a photo book comprised of original photographs mixed with historical photos and found materials. This compendium was created while surveying the development of a section of the E6, the main north-south thoroughfare in Norway, at the invitation of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration. Bergman’s approach stems in part from a strong distrust of the
preconditions for modern road construction — particularly that speed and acceleration should constitute the very premise for all societal development — and her credo: technology that destroys is not fundamentally different from that used for repair. Illustrating these ideas against the system of rules, planning, and structures made for the road, the book becomes an alternative travel guide for intuitive and free thought.
