Macho and The Impression of a Woman Figure are a diptych, intended to be played together, in which archival educational film is subverted to transform the content from informative to a comment on current society. Macho plays with the perception of masculine control within the porn industry. Imagery of Kurt Russell and specifically his crotch distort the view of the All American Hero, revealing a dark, sexual motivation.
