This web page will serve two purposes that will be realized in intersecting ways.

The first purpose is to explore the impact of computerized technology on monument design, how there are now more, and cheaper, options for the incorporation of visual imagery on gravestones, thus providing greater choice for people who wish to commemorate themselves and/or their loved ones.
The second purpose of the project will be a metacognitive analysis of my thought processes while creating this web site, trying, as much as possible, to verbalize the shifts in focus occurring within me and the reasoning behind the decisions I make as I compose in hypertext for the first time.
