Amanda is a quadraplegic. Now grown up, she was struck by a car at the age of twelve. She has survived massive spinal injuries because of technological advances, and interacts with the world almost exclusively through technology - operating her computer with her mouth to attend school, to read, to write, to draw. Amanda's life is filled with anger and hope, imagination and reality. Where our fantasies can sustain us for longer perhaps, Amanda's "real life" can't be suspended. She moves constantly between fantasy and reality as a necessity. Our program takes you inside the issues of personal space, body and technology.
