Thanks to her inherent gift of empathy and sensitivity to all things beautiful, Henry Mova cherishes what she believes is most valuable– the heritage of art, which she views as the potential for human progression. Sheathed in high-tech "armor" accentuates her visual rebirth from human to this bionic hybrid, making her invulnerable to the destructive energies imposed upon the world. Thus, transforming all negative processes into a perception based on the desire to create, preserve, and multiply beauty.

In a world where the imitation of life has become more important than life itself, Henry Mova instills awareness in humankind with her presence, illustrating the pitfalls of a consumerist society that awards the production of fake replicas over original ideas. In the spirit of neo-pop, Henry Mova is an independent art object whose reflective armor mirrors the everyday life of people who have become hostages to a world full of possessions without purpose or meaning. Existing in a world of mundanity, it is contemporary art that produces endless excitement for the hunter. The creations birthed from this field reflect the global processes of reality, the modern era, problems related to ecology, sustainable development, equality of rights and freedoms for all people, and other significant topics.

In moments of nostalgia, Henry Mova battles with the desire to locate her creator, the God-like individual who made it a point to preserve and program her love of artistic beauty and learn the mysteries of her origin.
Henry Mova reminds humanity, entangled in marketing ploys and information wars, how the dependence on social factors is short-lived compared to the idea of innovative and sustainable creations of modern masters. In particular, she garners inspiration from the ideas of eco-installations by Olafur Eliasson, art objects by Anish Kapoor, immersive paintings utilizing digital graphics by Android (Andrew) Jones, and architectural structures by Rem Koolhaas and Zaha Hadid.
Through images, Henry Mova demonstrates her admiration for the innovative designs of the fashion industry—the infamous chainmail dress by Paco Rabanne, the transformable garments by Hussein Chalayan, and the 3D outfits by Iris van Herpen.

Henry Mova dreams of the day she will have the opportunity to adopt a droid or a four-legged friend from Boston Dynamics into her life. However, due to a demanding schedule, she cannot afford to commit to such companions just yet. During travels, Mova enjoys rereading the works of Isaac Asimov, the creator of the novel I, Robot. In the book, he praises the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual perfection of machines, as he considers them the hope for humankind.

Henry Mova was strongly intrigued by the role of the Robot Maria in the dystopian film Metropolis by Fritz Lang (1927). Despite the visual similarity with the character, Henry Mova wants to dispel the neo-Luddist myth about machines that bring about catastrophe to humans. For this reason, philosophical arguments about the similarity of human and machine consciousness from Gavin Rothery's "My Creator" and the fantastic anime "Ghost in the Shell" are close. Henry Mova carries the mission of creation, considering the methods of the main character to be radical in resolving global issues.
Henry Mova is determined to alter the flow of human through the influence and acquaintance of contemporary artworks— conveying their ideas and implementing new technologies.
