      Hi Ell! The symposium was profoundly moving and inspiring. The intersection of human adaptibility and technology at its finest was masterfully showcased by John Hockenberry and his guests. Lucky for you, the entire session can be replayed as RealVideo off the symposium web site: h20.media.mit.edu/

      And can you tell I have a crush on Aimee Mullins?

      OOH! I will have to download this symposium. As an athletic young amputee I find Aimee pretty badass.

      Hi Mike,

      I have been working on a youth lead documentary about perfection at the Welcome Collection in London based on the Superhuman Exhibition:

      www.wellcomecollection.org/whats-on/exhibitions/superhuma...

      The film is about the human quest for perfection and looks at prosthetics. Although the exhibition is rich in imagery, we are only allowed to used photographs of objects which are owned by the Welcome Collection.

      We have an interview with the exhibition curator in which she refers to Amy Mullins stating that: 'she has used what some might consider a disability as a possibility to reinvent ideas of beauty'.

      Would you consider giving us permission to use this image in our film?

      Here is a link to my films so you can see the kind of work I am involved in:

      Best Wishes,

      Suzanne
