The film accompanies Talisman Exhibition by Jay Mosher and Rory Middleton and features music by Duncan Marquiss. The haunting chords are tone clusters in b flat, the same sound pitch generated by a black hole in the Perseus cluster, 250 million light years from Earth. The adjacent notes when played together create a throbbing pulse loaded with all of the sounds, images and fantasies created by years of science fiction speculation.
The Talisman is a towering, circular glass plane (58-and-a-half inches in diameter) that slowly rotates with the aid of a specifically-designed mechanism at the base. Like the coolly stoic images of those 1960s and 70s sci-fi films it shares - meditative works like Andrey Tarkovsky's Solaris (1972) - the Talisman is alien-like, mathematically perfect, coming alive with the hints of light and particulate that float around it.-Bryn Evans, 2012
