Kim de Groot is a design researcher with an MA in new media. She is part of the lectoraat Communication in a digital age and teaches new media at the Willem de Kooning academy Kim's research deals with the inverted relation between image and reality. Moving from representation to the performative, from the visual to the infrastructural, images are no longer created to represent a reality but to manage it. Kim examines images as informational objects and traces the relations between image, event and media.

In 2005 I graduated from the Piet Zwart Institute with a project called As we speak. It is a work based on programming and presented systems of response in realtime situations. My research focussed on the program of traditional knowledge sharing and the relation between the analog and the digital.
It was the particular program of the lecture I wanted to examine, test, and undermine. I was interested in the possibility of programming a gathering of people. For this experiment I wrote performative texts and performed them with different people. At the final show I presented my research in a performance with the computer and designed a physical input/output system for processing text.
