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.

To walk around an image

The method I’m using for my visual research is to develop concepts in Sketchup, a 3D modeling software. The most interesting and inspiring aspect of the software is that it allows me to walk around an image. collection of notes detached from image planecollection of notes detached from image plane

playing with notes on the Flickr imageplaying with notes on the Flickr imageIn many ways it opens up the potential of the image. For example, turning the image in SketchUp into an architectural model, allows me to work with the archival potentials of the digital image.

In translating the notations added to the image (its metadata) into an 3D model, the status of the original image (the painting) is challenged.
SketchUp enabled me to manipulate the Image as Map of interconnected Note objects. A question is how the 3D models in SketchUp could represent the internal networks of the image at the same time to allow for a rescripting of relations and protocols of the Flickr image?
Does the Image as Map allow for a protocological development of this particular image?
