Simploring 2017 (48) Solstice Light Show

Just recently I visited the light art installation Light Thoughts 3 and I published an entry about it here ). I was impressed.
I had a nice conversation with the two artists that realized the Light Thoughs 3 installation, Mario2 Helstein and Jo Williams, and I was invited to attend a Light Show on Saturday, June 17th.

I was never at a light show like this before in my over 9 years in Second Life. It is incredible what this platform offers for artists and for us to watch. The Theatre On The Hill is a tribune in the form of a half circle that floats in the sky. I took a seat and watched. WOW. Accompanied by modern digital music Mario created a firework of lights and effects, of forms and colours, of rotating shapes, of exploding and imploding stars and objects. He stood in the middle of the stage, that was invisible because of the light effects, at his console and directed the show.

It was not a short show, Mario performed far over an hour for us. Amazing, beautiful, impressive – I lack of words. I took 130 (!) in this one hour, to capture the moment, the colours, but you can capture the experience of seeing it live. The pictures can’t show the motion, how the objects changed in form and colour, and how the light particles steadily were changing what you saw.

I can’t publish all 130 pictures here nor can I replace the live experience with pictures but you might get a little impression of the show. I strongly recommend that you visit the show itself. There will be another live performance on June 30th. You should join the group “[M2D] creations” to get a group notice about it. And there will be also another light show in September – I hope that I don’t miss it.

Thank you Mario for this great hour in Second Life. I really enjoyed it and am impressed.
