The six two-dimensional, digital print works Making of Eve Clone Portraits IAR, are extensions of Portrait of Eve Clone and Making of Eve Clone II. They convey that the facial proportions and poses of Eve Clone are similar to Leonardo da Vinci’s portrayal of a woman, which perfectly follows the golden ratio.  I used the augmented reality (AR) technique to transform Eve Clone from static to dynamic images, as if Eve Clone entered from a plane to the real space. The viewer can use a tablet computer to interact with Eve Clone to the left and to the right. They can discover that the wireframe of Eve Clone moves, emerging from the frame and wandering between the left and right pictures. It is as if Eve Clone is entering from the digital era on the right side of the black background, moving to the era of da Vinci’s draft on the left side, and then returning to the right side again. Eve Clone is like a soul existing in the three-dimensional space, continually being juxtaposed and integrated with the main body of the original image. The works intentionally retain the wireframes of the bone structure of Eve Clone, a computer icon, and a camera icon. Symbols such as 144 > 666 and 721 > 666 are painted in golden lines; Lin Pey-Chwen uses these numbers from the Bible to indicate that Eve Clone is by nature a product of technology.
