This is the story of a young girl naked in a gallery, watching three short films about your life.
Inertia isn’t the absence of action or the resistance of movement. She’s a girl standing outside a Häagen-Dazs in downtown Tokyo, one, maybe two subway stops from Ikebukuro, just a short hop along the Marunouchi line. There is a row of trees behind her, their trunks painted white and their branches stripped of leaves. It is probably winter. At least, that’s what it seems like to me.
There are three surprising things to note about Inertia. The first is that she is completely naked except for six thin black silk ribbons. Two wrap tightly around her wrists, another two loop around her ankles turning her feet an alabaster white. One ribbon runs just under her small breasts and is tied in a bow at the base of her rib cage. The longest piece is tied elaborately like a deconstructed black thong, forking out at the crescent of her ass at the rear and dividing her smooth lips evenly at the front. The second surprising thing is her Häagen-Dazs name badge. It is pierced through the flesh of her upper left breast. The entry and exit holes leave a small dried trail of blood running down towards her nipple. The third surprising thing is that Inertia has spent the last twelve hours in a gallery watching three short films about your life.
