Click is an installation by the Korean art collective Shinseungback Kimyonghun. For one day, one of the artists recorded a screenshot every time he clicked he mouse before piecing it together into a mesmerizing 8-minute video. In the clip, you'll see the silent narrator working on another piece titled The God's Script, browsing using Korean search engine Naver, and binging on The Big Bang Theory, all punctuated by the rhythmic click of his obedient mouse. The result is an abstract journey through one day in the artist's "computer mediated life."

Previously, Shinseungback Kimyonghun created Portrait, a haunting series that combined the faces of all of the stars in a movie to create ghostly apparitions representing the film's character.
