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. heliades are part of the exhibition It’s all, oh so souvenir to me! Vol. 2!. More information regarding It’s all, oh so souvenir to me! Vol. 2! you can find on http://www.occhi.biz/v2/index.php/news/105-its-all-oh-so-souvenir-to-me.html
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 can be either hung from a wall or be placed on a surface as a picture frame.
