In Mapping Connections Test Print 1/2, Ruby Wheeldon offers a view of the rarely seen 'test print', the working copies of an artwork made before the edition is printed, where mistakes and accidents (good and bad) abound. This print is not registered, allowing for unexpected overlaps and shapes. Through the dark blue shadow-shapes, a map can be seen: a moment of clarity, a guide to finding one's way.
