The origin of Ping Pong dates to the Victorians when upper-middle-class families decided to take the lawn game of tennis inside. A bit of light entertainment after a splendid dinner, guests would use the dining room table to bounce small ping pong balls across in a hope to get the other player out. The sport itself evolved and took on an array of different names, most commonly “Table Tennis”, but the principle stayed the same.
Now, like so many other sports it has been immortalized in the art for all the world to remember, some even lend themselves to the more abstract eye. Most traditional paintings show two players either end of the table volleying a ball to each other, some rather realistically the art of motion is something that is quite tricky to capture but with a sport that is played in such small proximity, it seems that it is a better subject to show such movement (Example: a player play well using the best paddle). Often, however, players are not painting in a realistic tone, but more of a general wash of color as the focus on the painting is on the table, the ball or even the small paddles used in the game. Bold colors are used to attract the viewers’ attention, the signature pillar box red of the paddle is always a reference for what the painting is of. It is also interesting to note that the majority of paintings show the players to be well-dressed: wearing smart trousers and polo shirts with jumpers on, almost communicating that it is a gentleman’s game. This type of artwork can normally be found within the walls of small village cafes, or seaside art galleries, a small niche of work that is only eye-catching for a select few. The more realistic and vintage styles of paintings, however, are much more likely to grab your attention, due to their lavish exploration of not only the game of ping pong itself but the setting of a Victorian dining room with ladies and gentlemen alike engaging in a light afternoon of friendly sport.
Photographs of the sport are much more easily acquired although not in so much depend on the art market. Photographs gather the true feeling of the player as they serve or volley in a game, giving an almost pained look on the subject of the picture. Now the subject has changed from the game to the player themselves and it is quite striking the way in which someone can contort their body to make a shot and how well a photographer can time their camera to just capture that very moment, where you’re not sure if the player has broken their armor just made an unbelievable shot to win the game. You can’t compare prices for these moments captured happy faces because of victory. Either way, the sheer concentration and determination to win at a game that started out as after dinner entertainment is something that brings the photographs to life, as well as the moments of pure genius when the photographer is able to bring a fast-moving world to a halt in one click of a button.
Global Positioning System (GPS) is a new technology in getting positions of specific objects. Currently, it is a widely used technology, which makes navigation easier. It uses satellites with gadgets which have inbuilt gadgets to help in receiving of information. Aviation and trucking firms are the most famous areas which widely uses this technology. A gallery displays all the artifacts from these GPS gadgets for research, historical display and even for fun. The system has different capturing techniques which can be stored in a gallery as a reference point to even display milestones the system has made in using the GPS system.
The major aim of GPS galleries is to portray a sense of art. GPS provides a 3-dimension drawing while at the gallery, you can have a display of the same in a 2-dimesion drawing, which is hand drawn or scribbled by a computer. Currently, most of the gadgets which use mobile technology have an inbuilt GPS technology in them, although they have limited functions compared to a GPS device specifically designed for navigation.
What are some of the contents of a GPS gallery?
Cyclists and runners
Cyclists and runners can define their course of actions run by getting their routes. You cannot get lost, furthermore, it also provides additional information like prevailing weather conditions, type of terrain and any other relevant information. As a runner or a cyclist, you can now draw your route while deleting unnecessary information. Similarly, long distance runners in their course of practice also need GPS system as a guide to unfamiliar places. Renowned cyclists put all these collections of drawings in a public gallery or personal gallery in their home to act as a point of reference for future use. You can also just have a drawing of a new place you visited just for fun and share it in social media pages as a guide to anybody who might have interest.
There is massive reduction of vehicle theft internationally, this is attributed to innovation of the GPS system with heavy duty battery to make sure it won’t die when you most need it. Since it uses a GPS satellite, be sure you can trace your vehicle irrespective of the remoteness of the place. Car hire businesses have really benefitted from this technology. Once you have the GPS photographs, you can now make your own drawings to get the shortest and the best route to save on fuel so that your customers reach their destinations on time. Traffic jams is a social challenge in most modern cities hence the system will be of help.
Pilots and stakeholders in the aviation industry also need vital information for safe landing and taking off of planes. Initially, they relied on old navigation methods, which had their own share of challenges. GPS system solves most of these problems. Drawings of the same can be as a stock so that when there is a system failure you can have a backup from the current technology.
GPS galleries are the best store for GPS drawings. They have numerous functions for individuals and public.
