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.

The overload of thumbnails on the iPhone's interface is not images, it is all applications (apps). Apple claims there is "Apps for Everything"; Apps for Working Out, Apps for Around the House, Apps for Going Out, Apps for Managing Money, Apps for Cooks, Apps for Keeping Current, Apps for the Great Outdoors, Apps for Music, Apps for Students, Apps for Mom and Dads, Apps for Work, Apps for Fun and Games, Apps for Traveling. For now this is where the 'Apps for Everything' range ends although I guess that within a month another segment of life will be ‘apped’ and interfaced.
