Emi Anrakuji takes on roles of both performer and photographer for this work. When viewed in their current context, her daily routines are transformed into meaningful meditations of self.

In reference to this series, Anrakuji states, “I am not eloquent about my work. All I can say is ‘chasm’ is a stronger expression than ‘scream’; If you are in deep trouble, mentally and physically, you cannot even scream.”
