Click to draw three cards

The basic concept behind a Tarot deck is storytelling. A random three-image set is generated at each draw and the interpretation of this sequence provides a narrative meaning.

This software was designed to test whether even without a prior knowledge of a signification of the cards a meaning could be extracted from the sequences generated at each draw.

Obviously that is not the case: Some prior familiarity with the represented material is essential to make sense of this - or a very rich imagination.

The relation between Tarot and Cesare Rippa's Iconologia - if any - and how this would tie with Warburg's insertion in the discussion.
