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.

Now is the time! on Media

On October 3 the University of Amsterdam organized the first two lectures as a part of Now is the time! a lecture series on art and theory in the 21st century. The topic of this evening was the relation between new media and art.
What is the status of the medium in art production and the discourse in art, in this situation referred to by Rosalind Krauss as the ‘postmedium condition’? How can an artist act critically in this complex cultural field now dominated by multimedia and mass media?

Kaja Silverman discussed the role of the digital image in the work of James Coleman, an intervention in Leonardo da Vinci,  for the Louvre in 2003. Her lecture was followed by Laura Marks who held a very interesting talk about the relation between new media and Islamic art. Both lectures presented intriguing insights on the current state of the (digital) image.

DMI, Digital methods initiative

DMI, the digital methods initiative. A group of researchers that I have joined in 2008 as a designer researcher. Together with Marina Micheli, an intern at Mediamatic, Micheal Stevenson, Esther Weltevrede, Richard Rogers and Sabine Niederer I have been working on the interface design of the Google scraper. Other projects I have worked on are Election Issue Imagery and Elfriendo, a myspace related online service.

"The Digital Methods Initiative, supported by the Mondriaan Interregeling, is concerned with the techniques of study that are sensitive to the specificities of the new medium. The director of the projects is Richard Rogers. Sabine Niederer and Esther Weltevrede manage the Digital Methods Initiative, and Anne Helmond and Kim de Groot are the analyst-designers, together with Michael Stevenson. Erik Borra is programmer, also for Govcom.org. Marieke van Dijk is Govcom.org designer."
