Art in Second Life 2020 (21) Mario Helstein’s Spring Lightshow 2020

I visit Mario Helstein (Mario2 Helstein)’s lightshows, whenever it fits into my Second Life and I wrote already blogposts about them, for example about the Easter Light Show in 2018 (read here). As briefly mentioned in the Diary post for March 22nd/23rd (read here) I visited Mario’s Spring lightshow with slave Gwendi on Sunday, March 22nd. And of course I took quite some pictures again!

It was a fantasic show and Mario added new elements (at least for me) like projected figures dancing together – impressive. The light effects do fit to the selected music, which was not only intrumental this time but also included one of my favourite songs “Bridge over troubled water”.

But pictures can never replace seeing Mario’s show life as the 3rd dimension and the music is missing. The 2D pictures can turn out being very artful though – a moment of the fleeting virtual light art captured in a picture, unique in itself and hard to reproduce.

The lightshows, at least the last ones that I visted were presented at the Theatre on the Hill in Second Life. The Spring lightshow 2020 was very well attended, actually all seats were taken, more than 80 people were there. There was a wesite of the Theatre on the Hill but it is no longer active and I didn’t find a new link.

The best way to get a notice about Mario’s lightshows is to visit his store in Second Life named M2D and to join his group [M2D] Creations (link only within Second Life). Alternatively you can follow Mario on facebook.

Fortunately there are people who take videoclips or record the whole lightshow and upload it to youtube. I found a clip of the Spring lightshow 2020 recorded by Mohini MofuL that provides a good impression and is a real teaser not to miss the next event.

And if you want to see more, the video taken by Peter Auer shows the complete show. Enjoy!

Don’t miss the next Lightshow – whenever it is presented *winks*
Many thanks to Mario – I enjoyed your show!
