The Art Is a Lie

this is a fictitious cake from the video game known as portal. when you're solving puzzles in portal, you are encouraged to keep going with the promise of cake. once you've gotten far enough in the game, you see scrawls on the wall from past puzzle solvers saying "the cake is a lie". now the phrase "the cake is a lie" is used to express the sentiment that "your promised reward is merely a fictitious motivator".
