Helio, the Sun or in this case the radio-heliograph that captures two-dimensional images of the solar corona at different frequencies, against Blue, the sky as it gradually shifts from white to black through 52 shades of blue; a re-imagining of the Cyanometer an 18th century instrument for measuring the ‘blueness’, specifically the colour intensity of blue sky.
