Sam Lavigne: New York Apartment

New York Apartment combines the totality of New York real estate into a single website, sourced from every single for-sale listing in New York City. The site includes hundreds of thousands of images, video tours, descriptive sentences, 3D structures generated from extruded floor plans, and a mortgage calculator.

New York Apartment was made in collaboration with Tega Brain as a commission from the Whitney Museum of American Art.

New York Apartment (excerpts) brings together a selection of the materials gathered for the New York Apartment project as a single-channel video.

Sam Lavigne is an artist and educator whose work deals with data, surveillance, cops, natural language processing, and automation. His work often takes the form of rhetorical software, software that subverts existing digital platforms and technologies to unveil their politics and hijack them for more liberatory ends.

He has exhibited work at Lincoln Center, SFMOMA, Pioneer Works, DIS, Ars Electronica, The New Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and his work has been covered in the New Yorker, the Washington Post, the Guardian, Motherboard, Wired, the Atlantic, Forbes, NPR, the San Francisco Chronicle, the World Almanac, the Ellen Degeneres Show and elsewhere.

He has been awarded fellowships from the Magic Grant program at the Brown Institute at Columbia University and the ITP program at NYU, and was previously Special Projects editor at the New Inquiry Magazine. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Design at UT Austin.
