Revelation of Even Clone (installation, 2011) In Eve Clone Series, Lin has created a genetic clone woman in 3D animation, which deforming frequently in the test tube. This digital figure is named “Eve Clone” because God created Eve, but human creates “Eve Clone” — the artificial life of woman. It is the theme of questioning of Man’s desire to play God through the science and technology. Moreover, Lin imprinted 666 numbers in different language on the forehead and right hand of Eve Clone because the Bible’s Revelation, 13:18 says that in The End of the Days, the one with the numbers 666 engraved on the forehead and right hand will not be able to escape from the control of evil beasts. Lin uses this figure as a metaphor referring to natural disasters caused by the extreme development of science and technology. If human being isn’t aware of this, he will be restrained by science and technology, just like Eve Clone, who bears the “sign of the beast” on her forehead.
