According to the artist, Inercia alludes to the actual physics definition of inertia, which is the resistance of any physical object to a change in its state of rest or motion. The piece relates to the disturbances in various European countries in the wake of the Euro financial crisis, most notably in Greece and Spain. The work is an installation structured around three elements: the re-editing of the film Streets of Fire (1984), directed by Walter Hill; videogames, in particular first-person shooter ones; and a series of moulds based on the Jhon-117 character in the Halo video game.

Inercia [Inertia] is the winning project of the LABjoven_Experimenta, the joint call for proposals by LABoral and the Instituto Asturiano de la Juventud [Asturian Youth Institute] aimed at artists or collectives, born or resident in the Principality of Asturias, or up the second generation of descendants of Asturian emigrants, aged 35 or under.  This award, which now celebrates its sixth edition, is dedicated to experimental artistic projects (installations, multimedia installations, actions, interventions and any other creative process) specifically conceived for its exhibition at LABoral Centro de Arte.

Production: LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial and the Instituto Asturiano de la Juventud [Asturian Youth Institute] of the Consejería de Presidencia del Principado de Asturias
