Humanity now opposes the laws of nature and tries to change God’s creation through the development of a technological civilization, including such actions as manipulating nature and employing cloning technology to create artificial life. Although technology brings convenience and enjoyment it may tempt humanity to go down a road of no return. Nature has encountered unrestrained destruction and humanity is facing a series of irreversible disasters through climate change, use of nuclear technology, chemicals in the environment, GM foods, cloning, electromagnetic radiation and computer chips. In order to counter these phenomena, I have used 3D animation to create a hybrid female human, which represents the enticing yet deadly products of scientific experiments. I have named this creature “Eve Clone”: Because God created Eve, humans want to clone Eve.

The “great image” in the Bible inspired me to create “Eve Clone”, which symbolizes the authority and glory of the technology that humans are worshipping.The image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. (Daniel 2:31-33). I have also marked “666” on Eve Clone’s forehead and right hand—the sign of the beast in the Bible’s Book of Revelations, which symbolizes her control of humanity. (Revelation 13:16-18)

In the video “Eve Clone” is submerged in the sea amidst ruins, the water is stained red as the blood of a corpse (Revelation 16:2-4). Although she escapes from the water, she is ultimately broken to pieces by a stone, becoming like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them. (Daniel 2:34-35)

In the end, the video will show the stone that destroys the image becomes a great mountain. The musical soundtrack is a hymn to represent that the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ: and he shall reign forever and ever.( Revelation 11:15)The way that the “great image” symbolizes the authority and glory of technology, should remind people that the technological civilization they worship will ultimately be crushed by God.

啟:16:2-6
第一位天使便去,把碗倒在地上,就有惡而且毒的瘡生在那些有獸印記、拜獸像的人身上。
And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
第二位天使把碗倒在海裡,海就變成血,好像死人的血,海中的活物都死了。
And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man : and every living soul died in the sea.
第三位天使把碗倒在江河與眾水的泉源裡,水就變成血了。
And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
我聽見掌管眾水的天使說:昔在、今在的聖者啊,你這樣判斷是公義的;
And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
他們曾流聖徒與先知的血,現在你給他們血喝;這是他們所該受的。
For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
