"Hide is a work that began as a commentary on Wisconsin's hunting tradition, using deer stands as a metaphor for the changing values of the sport. When Jason was suddenly confronted with a cancer diagnosis he interrupted the project and Hide took on a much deeper, more personal meaning. Having to face mortality so unexpectedly made him come back to the project with a new perspective on the ideas of permanence and impermanence. Ultimately, Hide became his reflection on legacies and family, his homage to the state that has become his home, and a narrative about accepting change." — Publisher
