Lauri Twitchell: "Hide and seek, a kids game played in many cultures, is a metaphor for how we wander through the world, actively searching for something or sitting back to see how things unfold. Synonyms for 'hide' and 'seek' are found along a path under stone tracings with maps attached as you travel through the book."
