Mona's artwork originally is an augmented reality artpiece available to anyone with a smartphone from everywhere: humanoid characters performing different actions around the recipient. The characters appear covered with a black and white grid and they are partially transparent. The characters imitate human activities: kissing, swimming, walking, etc.  Their activity is partially connected and they don't interact with each other intentionally. The artwork's fundamental aim is to pay our attention to human's changing connection with virtuality. Are we different from the binary code that helps us to understand ourselves and the environment surrounding us?
