Snakes, wolf-men, pitch-black plasma, dark swamps, old, twisted wrought iron-these are the elements that make up the American woman designer Margo Chase's designs. She appeared like a comet. What makes her designs so appealing. Inspire of her having become an artist, she once planned to be a veterinarian. Her works have a double construction connoting her side as a biologist. "One of the reasons I'm involved in this work is that I can create images that are not ordinary." Her works that suggest the essence of the visual culture and unknown possibilities overwhelmed the large hall. About 200 works were exhibited including movie posters, CD jackets and snowboards. Also shown was a video summarizing her design work.
