Works 1993-2004, Typologies and Capacities is a project that constructs a map that illustrates the artist Jeanne van Heeswijk's relationship to participants taking part in her projects over a period of twelve years.
Through the maps index the viewer can see the wide range of subjects that the artist has dealt with throughout this period. In addition to that the artists network is presented as certain individuals connect to several different projects. The map is a profile of the artist, showing the multiplicity in subject matter and people her artwork has bridged, revealing the artist's wish to use complex networking as a basis for art.
The map by Maurits de Bruijn is constructed of three parameters, the project, the duration of the project, and the number of people or institutes involved in the project. Connections between projects and the people/institutions are colour coded to represent the capacity or capacities a participant had to a project. The index of different capacities associated to the participants are each assigned a specific type of potato; totalling 26 different potatoes. Using this classification the map was constructed into a 3d equivalent in Berlin (May 2004) connecting the potatoes using coloured string.
