‘Inertia’ is a homage to dystopian science fiction, the word referring to the slowdown in a pendulum movement. The work is a digital animation, entirely constructed with 3D software.
The viewer visits an abandoned and lifeless planet – ours? In this barren desert, a large bunker like building contains remnants of a lost civilization. In large glass cases, possible scenarios of the destruction of the planet are preserved. Hints of what might have happened are hidden in the film.
