This work satirizes mankind’s obsession to use technology, such as computer software, biotechnology, virtual reality, genetic modification, cloning technology, and artificial life, etc., to play the role of the creator, thinking that they can use technology to replace nature.

Therefore, the author has created an installation for the audience to play as the creator. Using computer programs, a computer touch screen, and interactive systems to generate real-time and interactive images, the audience can participate in the process of creating butterflies. When the audience walks into the exhibition space, they immediately notice an image of a massive aquarium. There are all kinds of butterflies and sounds in the deep ocean. The audience will feel as if they’ve entered a virtual world. Right in front of the surreal ocean scene, there is a touch screen podium for the audience to interact with the piece. They can draw butterflies and watch their creation flutter in the screen above. It allows them to experience the grandeur of being a creator, even if it’s only virtually. The author uses virtual technology (interactive systems, computer programs, animated images) to mock the desire to create and the sense of satisfaction that technology brings to mankind.
