Power Play is an animated video, consisting of ten different scenes in which two men compete in emphasizing their manhood, using different attributes in a series of nonsense acts. The video comments on and clearly ridicules the stereotypes that the two characters embody in their man-to-man conversation, customs that are generally established in the western culture. The film focuses on this play of acts, to make the viewer clear on how meaningless this behavior is. When installed in a gallery a counterpoint and spectator to this part of the work is present. In this other video, containing only one scene, a completely bored woman is watching the men performing their acts.
