I wish to thank Elizabeth Monske for having the faith in me to ask if I would contribute to this important issue and for her willingness to help me bring it to its current state. I also want to thank Jonathan Harris for his gracious assistance with the design.


Photo: A picture of the only access ramp to Ellis Hall (a four floor building with classrooms and offices) on the Ohio University campus in Athens, OH. The picture shows a narrow ramp with a white handrail. The paint on the railing is flaking and rust is showing in multiple spots. The picture also shows the derelict nature of the ramp due to lack of upkeep and fall leaves cluttered along the railing.

YouTube video: This video shows what appears to be a distracted person walking in a mall. The person is texting on her cell phone and appears to be unaware of a fountain in front of her. The fountain is contained and has a one- to two-foot barricade holding the water. The person walks into the barrier and falls into the water. After she falls in, she climbs out of the water and walks away. The sound in the video is of commentary from, I assume the surveillance system camera in the mall, watchers of the video detailing the woman walking, falling, and walking away. The commentary also includes laughter at the woman's misfortune.

Homepage and Header Watermark Image: This piece is entitled "Brainwaves," and was done by Minnesotan artist Kelly Marie Beckius. Twisting waves overlap, collide, and tangle into vines. Red with energy, they converge across the plain until meeting a black mass, which bleeds across the space. The vines pass through the darkness, and come out smaller and less vibrant as they continue their journey across the surface.
