“13532 Clicks” was an installation/machine performance in a dark room with a computer, projector, Internet connection and custom software. It ran throughout the month of December 2013, during the solo exhibition On the Mechanical Operation of the Spirit at Pilot Gallery, Istanbul.
The custom software running on the computer continually tries to open a series of blocked websites in Turkey, in alphabetical order, within a loop whose duration is several hours. The viewer watches the unsuccessful attempts to enter banned sites through a locked glass doors that would otherwise lead to the room, a space normally used for video screenings. Prior to each new page load, a loud mouse clicking effect can be heard. The piece functions only in Turkey where these 13532 websites are censored.
