About the Exhibit

Eve Clone is a recurring figure in my art and an unholy product of 3-D computer animation and associated digital technology. The text below her is a reference to the statue dreamt by king Nebuchadnezzar in the Book of Daniel - a statue that symbolizes human hubris challenging God. In the video Making of Eve Clone I, I superimposed the development of Eve Clone on the drawings of Vitruvian Man by Leonardo Da Vinci, in which he delineates his idea of the ideal human physique. For the video, I used a virtual camera to show from various angles how Eve Clone has been shaped and to emphasize her digital nature. The wire frame and skeleton, VU texture mapping, and pattern engraving not only serve as documentation but also underline how Eve Clone is a digital product of human desire. I elaborate on this theme in a series of two-dimensional works documenting the formation of Eve Clone. I have added paint and then enhanced by AR techniques to these photographs. All these works reflect on the relationship between humans and their technology.
