Satan plays his favorite trick

2 min excerpt from Satan plays his favorite trick, 2017, Single-channel HD video with sound, 6 minutes

Satan plays his favorite trick treats the atrium of Trump Tower New York as a subject, setting colliding digital and physical worlds against the pink marble, gold mirrors, and cascading fountain of the atrium. The title comes from the Mirrors chapter of Walter Benjamin's The Arcades Project. (The atrium of the tower is technically an arcade).
