Heliades - the greek mementos
Heliades were the children of the Sun. They are also Greek mementos, photographs taken by the Greek sun, allowing memories of Greece to be fixed (as they would be on photographic paper) on pieces of Greek Marble.
These marble blueprints are created using a photographic printing process. A photosensitive solution is applied to the surface of the marble, making it sensitive to the ultraviolet light of the sun. The blue colour is the result of the sun reacting to the photosensitive surface of the marble.
Heliades are created on thin tiles of Greek marble and they can be either hunged from a wall or be placed on a surface as a picture frame.
