Diary 2018 (57) April 1st – Mario’s Easter Light Show

I had an invitation to for Sunday, April 1st, Easter 2018, to visit Mario2 Helstein’s Easter Light show. Angelique accompanied me to the event, which was once again at the Theatre On The Hill. Mario presented an amazing show again. The light effects are breathtaking, the music is selected thoughtfully. There were quite some elements that I saw in previous light shows of Mario, but it looks different from every angle, and different if you zoom in and out – and even more important, you I can’t get enough watching it. Following the show was a real Easter event for me.

Of course I took dozends of pictures again, much more than I can show here. I got the link to a videotaping of the whole light show from Mario a couple of hours after the show. The video was recorded by Peet Auer. There you can get an idea how amazing the light show looks like seeing it live.

And the next day I got the linkto another video showing some parts of the Easter Light show at the Theater In the Hill. This video was taken by Suzie Anderton of InWorld Films.

Thank you for the great show, Mario!

Diary 2017 (160) Sept. 22nd/23rd – Pirates, Lights, and a dress

Friday night, September 22nd, we had another party. The theme that Virgo picked was “Pirates”. We were just Virgo, Starry and myself in the beginning and hence I had time to get a fitting dress on the marketplace. I’m prepared now for the next “Pirates”-party. We had a very nice party with more guests later.

Saturday, September 23rd, I met with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. She had announced before to take more control again yet I didn’t expect what she had in mind. We went to Restrained Freedom and she bought a sub suit for me. The sub suit is a quite elaborted restricting dress, that offers a lot of different designs, from a short unstricted dress to a full encasement with a hood – and a lot inbetween. Every single part of it can be coloured with a HUD in any Color and any material. Offering such a variety it is not that easy to set it up. slave Flo has one and I played with it several times. And now I own one, because Mistress wanted it for me. To stay honest, she also said that I may buy her one too. She will have the advantage that I can help her setting it up. I spent the rest of Saturday afternoon with setting up the sub suit and had it ready for Mistress Jenny at night.

Saturday night we went attending a light show by Mario2 Helstein. I know Mario’s art and shows from visiting his LEA installation “Light Thoughts 3” (read here) and from visitng one of his former shows, the “Solstice Light Show” (read here). Mario had been busy working on the Sansar project and is back to Second Life now to do some events. He did a new “Equinox Show” at the Theatere On the Hill Saturday night and I had an invitation.

The show was fantastic again and I took about 100 (!) pictures again. For Mistress Jenny and slave Flo it was the first time seeing Mario’s light show and I’m glad they liked it as I did. Just amazing!

The show lasted over one hour and slave Flo went to bed when it was finished. Mistress Jenny and I went to The Secret house to wind down and we met Argi there. Soon later Kitty and slave slut cecy joined us. As it was already late we just chatted and caught up, then we brought slave cecy to Lochme, where she can hang around for a while.

What a varied Saturday night!

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.
