Brit is a human person. Sometimes she designs things. Sometimes she takes photos of people. Sometimes she makes music. Sometimes she plays music in nightclubs. Sometimes she draws pictures of things. In the future, she will write short stories. She will also fabricate miniature set pieces. She may even make short films. Surreality over reality. Form over function.
