Title Image
This is a still image from the digital video artwork Bathroom Stall Tears Part 1 by artist Yoshie Sakai. In the image, Sakai is dressed as a younger version of herself (pictured on the left) and her grandmother (pictured on the right). The character on the left is situated in a bathtub with only her head visible and two bottles of soap placed on a small crevice of the wall. She is smiling while looking up at the character on the right. The character on the right is sitting on top of a toilet, and is dressed wearing a short sleeve patterned blouse, dark brown pants, and silver wig styled in a low bun. She has her hands folded in her lap with a slight smile on her face as she looks down at the character in the bathtub. To her right is a white cabinet, and to her left is a light pink colored towel.
