Empty Apartments is an online curatorial project featuring 125,000 images of apartments pulled from Craigslist. It forms a record of vernacular American rental architecture and the anonymous landlord-photographers who took them. The familiar and the strange mark these images: repeating patterns of glowing windows in under-lit rooms, the same kitchen setups over-and-over, blurry shots of wood floors, and HDR images of fancy apartment complexes. The photographs are presented en-masse, sorted algorithmically by visual similarity.
This project was made in collaboration with Angeles Cossio.
