Light Thoughts 4 LEA 26 & LEA 27 - Second Life

Light Thoughts 4 LEA 26 & LEA 27 - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Saturday, April 28th, I visited “Light Thoughts 4” within the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) program at LEA 26 and LEA 27. It is a joint installation by Mario2 Helstein and Jo Williams following their joint installation last year (Light Thoughts 3 – read here).

Lights of Arkon and  Arkon Spring 2018 - aux Fouquets Isle - Second life

Lights of Arkon and  Arkon Spring 2018 - aux Fouquets Isle - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Seit Atlan Bades Blogpost über die Frühlingsgestaltung auf Arkon, einer halben Homestead Region in der Nähe der Blake Sea, wollte ich diesen Ort mal besuchen. Nachdem Atlan dann am letzten Donnerstag auch noch ein paar Updates zu seiner Licht- und Partikelinstallation "Lights of Arkon" vorgestellt hat, war ich am Osterwochenende mal dort.

Zuerst war ich in der Lichtinstallation. Am Landepunkt steht eine Teleport Säule mit einigen Zielen. Dazu gibt es noch einen Link zu zwei kostenlosen Avataren von Mario2 Helstein, die für einen Besuch von Lights of Arkon gut geeignet sind. Es gibt je einen weiblichen und einen männlichen Avatar.

Light Thoughts 3 at Lea 21 by Mario2 Helstein - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Erst kürzlich hatte ich hier ein Video von Chantal Harvey vorgestellt. Heute gibt es noch eins, allerdings ist das etwas komplett anderes als ihre Story vom kleinen Roboter. Und zwar wurde am 21. Mai die Installation "Light Thoughts 3" von Mario2 Helstein auf LEA 21 eröffnet. Dazu gab es eine Party, bei der DJ Denard Henry aufgelegt hat. Denard ist wiederum einer der Betreiber des Inspire Space Park.

Light Thoughts 3 at Lea 21 by Mario2 Helstein - Second Life

Light Thoughts 3 at Lea 21 by Mario2 Helstein - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

This sim opened today and was featured on the SL Destination guide saying: "Light Thoughts 3 is an exhibition of mesh and prim forms, lights, effects and innovative scripting. This LEA sim is a stimulating example of artistic creation and technical scripting and innovation in Second Life." The sim is filled with cool lighted 3d creations to explore and looks great in the dark natural windlight setting. My favorite part is the rotating bubble wand Ferris wheel. Thing move and glow.Check it out.

Artist Slatan Dryke drew my attention to Light Thoughts 2, a full region installation by Mario2 Helstein which is now open. "I really would recommend a visit, it's a jewel!" Slaton said, refusing to give away more. Intrigued, I hopped over to have a peek - and "jewel" is precisely the right description for this build,…

I cannot even begin to describe this project, until I explain that NONE of the pictures, shown here, do it justice, because a major part of the art is moving light and textures, playing on and incorporated into the solid sculptures on the sim.
To any observer, this exhibit of lights and sculptures will be a wonderful adventure. To a seasoned Designer, Artist, Builder, there is an inner beauty that shines for them. This Artist, Mario2 Helstein, is an adept in the sciences of Geometry, architectural strength and chromatics, and even a fair amount of Psychology. I found his sculptures somehow fascinating, but it took a couple of days, looking at the photos, to discover why. Bless his PXL (Pneumatic Xtal Lattice) heart. He builds with triangles. His triangles have holes in the middle.

Light Thoughts & Fun With Buttons in Second Life

Light Thoughts & Fun With Buttons in Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

The installation on LEA15↑ by Mario2 Helstein↑ is a“sim is filled with innovative lighting and mesh effects. The purpose of this sim is to be a fun place, with regular shows and events.”

You can start your adventure by sitting in a boat as it floats through a wonderland of colour and form, watching for distinct objects to appear and then be replaced by even more amazing creations. I spent a lot of time de-rendering (or hiding selected in the main viewer) to isolate just a few of them.

Impressions of Mario Helsteins Lightshow  13 May - Second Life

Impressions of Mario Helsteins Lightshow  13 May - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

In den ersten zwei, drei Minuten begann die Show noch recht dezent. Doch schon zum zweiten Song steigerten sich die Effekte zu einer optischen Symphonie. Manches hatte ich in dieser Form bisher in Second Life noch nicht gesehen. Ich habe über 60 Fotos geschossen, von denen ich jedes hier in den Beitrag hätte nehmen können. Stehende Bilder zeigen natürlich nicht die eigentliche Schönheit einer animierten Licht- und Partikelshow. Aber ich denke, man erkennt sogar auf den Fotos, dass hier ein paar außergewöhnliche Effekte gezeigt wurden.

Light Thoughts 4 by Jo Williams, LEA 26 & Mario2 Helstein LEA 27 - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Yesterday, I went to Light Thoughts 4, a couple exhibitions by Jo Williams and Mario2 Helstein, at LEA26 and LEA27, respectively

While Jo offers a colourful romantic garden, Mario invites us to a funky trip around the animal kingdom, with animated figures. Something not to miss, really.

Light Thoughts 3 LEA 20 - LEA 21 Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Both art installations work with mesh forms, fantasy plants and animals, with light and light effects, particles and colours. I started with LEA 20 by Jo Williams. It is described as “a dark sim, expressing the feminine experience and principles -flow, darkness, power, wisdom, beauty, abundance, romance, seduction, love and destruction using shapes and lights with mythical and spiritual symbology…and pose balls (ha!).”

 LEA 20: "Light Thoughts 2" von Mario2 Helstein - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
Ich habe wieder eine LEA-Region besucht, auf der schon einige Events gelaufen sind, die aber im LEA-Blog nicht vorgestellt wurde. Durch einen Blogpost von Eddi Haskell wurde ich aufmerksam darauf, dass die Region im Grunde geöffnet ist. Eddi hat übrigens am Ende seines Berichts ein paar animierte GIF-Bilder eingefügt, was er häufig macht, wenn sich auf seinen besuchten Regionen irgendwas bewegt.
Viel zu schreiben über diese Region, habe ich eigentlich nicht. Das ist etwas, bei dem Bilder viel mehr erzählen. In der Land-Info steht, dass "Light Thoughts 2" eine Welt der Formen und Lichter ist. Eine Notecard habe ich nicht gefunden. Aber eigentlich muss man zu dieser Installation nicht unbedingt die Hintergründe wissen. Es macht auch sehr viel Spaß, einfach von Objekt zu Objekt zu laufen und die Optik auf sich wirken zu lassen.

Mario2 Helstein's Light Thoughts at LEA20 is a work of pure brilliance, and a worthy successor to the 2015 Light Thoughts installation. This is a pulsating and vibrant work of art; everything is moving in harmony just as if it were a living organism. What impressed me the most was the brilliance of the colors and how they blend in unique ways. Each viewing angle brought a new perspective to the different layers of light-based forms. I highly recommend a visit.

Mario2 Helstein's Light Thoughts, over at LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) 15, is a work of pure brilliance. This is a pulsating and vibrant art installation, everything is moving in harmony just as if it were a living organism.  Honour McMillan reports than you can even program your own shows by pressing buttons on a giant control panel using the poster near the arrival area as a teleport.

Echt Virtuell: LEA 15: "Light Thoughts" von Mario2 Helstein - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

"Light Thoughts" von Mario2 Helstein ist ein echter Rausch für die Sinne. Ein festes Thema gibt es nicht und auch keine geordnete Struktur. Mario2 hat einfach eine große Sammlung von Partikel- und Mesh-Objekten, lokalen Lichtern und farbenfrohen Texturen quer über die Region verteilt. Vieles davon ist in Bewegung. In Summe kommt das dann wirklich beeindruckend, vor allem, wenn man auf diese Art von Lichtspielen steht (so wie ich).
