The buffoon in tarot represents the conjurer. He also represents personal initiative. Because it can alter and play with images, video also has the capacity to act as conjurer. In this instance, the medium of video records passersby in a part of town where neon and shop windows beckon consumers to stop and look. And it enables us to view the urban structures which displease a young man, whose preoccupation with a mirror evokes the tale of Narcissus.
