'Tricks and lies, video clip' by art+power

Mephistophilis has just created a beautiful woman for Faustus, but only he can see her. She is just a magic trick, not a real person to love him.

As he leaves the stage, the narrator explains about tricks and lies and glory: "Tricks are about lies. Because a trick is not a true thing. It is made up like a different sort of story. Crude and wicked, and it is the opposite of glory. Tricks will take away the last of the things that Faustus can love."
