By using 3D computer animation, I create a human clone who lives in the water in a test tube and metamorphoses all the time. The human clone is transformed from a “chrysalis” shape to a naked beauty with butterfly wings. She absorbs nutrients and becomes a real-woman-like woman. It is why she is named Eve Clone. The bubbles floating on the water surface in the test tube symbolize the nutrients for Eve Clone and the computer program. Therefore, the more bubbles there are to supply Eve Clone, the more evolutionary she becomes like real human (meaning that the computer program is more powerful). The less bubbles there are for Eve Clone, she will regress to the butterfly-woman or the chrysalis shape. Therefore, the work projects a giant simulated aquarium and uses hidden webcam to establish a viewer-interactive system. When viewers walk into the sensor area, images will simultaneously be captured in the bubbles, and viewers will surprisingly find out that they have already become part of the work. When more viewers come, the bubbles get more, and Eve Clone is more progressive. On the contrary, if fewer viewers come, the bubbles get fewer, and Eve Clone returns to her chrysalis shape. The work discusses that a human clone created by human beings might be as real as a real human but she is so fragile that she cannot survive by herself. She can appear in any space-time to evolve or to reproduce, but the lack of nutrient (the flaws of computer program) still can make her return to the most primitive artificial cell clone.
