The sketchbook has always been used as a tool to study and understand nature by drawing.
According to Skorgan Teigen, her sketchbooks with photographs, drawings and collages become the physical gathering point where impressions and observations of the outside world and her inner world meet. The psychological truth takes physical form and is manifested in the pages of the sketchbook; studying and drawing structures taken from nature gives her time to reflect on how forms and rules coexist.

A key in the project is how the sketchbook as a medium never insists on a conclusion or a final answer, but is an investigative medium in itself. This goes hand-in-hand with the author’s fascination with the things we cannot see, such as the micro/macro-cosmos, psychological and emotional experiences and existential questions, which also do not have or can ever have any definitive answers.
