permanent Ball Tracks

13 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about a new category for permanent Ball Tracks (I hope this is the right term ...).

 

Examples:

http://www.Waymarkin...0c-6b819230c536

http://www.Waymarkin...b1-4edecd083b53

 

You can find them at parks, museums, playgrounds, town halls and at other locations.

They are made of stone, wood, metal or other materials.

They have to be permanent to qualify.

Some of them are just simple but others are more comlicated.

 

What do you think?

Is this an interesting idea?

 

I know we have an existing categories for Rolling Ball Sculptures. But they are something different and really hard to find.

Rolling Ball Sculptures need some kind of lifting mechanism to qualify.

That's the point!

The point here is that the "Rolling Ball Sculptures" category has a grand total of 40 approved waymarks and was created on 1/20/2009. That is 7 years, 3 months, 11 days ago.

 

How will this category fare seven years from now?

So, would this qualify as a lifting mechanism?

I am not an officer, but I would approve it. And don't forget to crosspost it to the Vortex category! :ph34r:

These ball tracks are great. Through all my travels I've never seen one. So I think they are too rare for their own category.

Personally, we think there are not enough of them to sustain their own category. I have not seen one, and I travel a lot, and go to many different kinds of places. Are these predominantly found in science museums? Or are they just random art pieces?

Not sure but would they might fit in the Kinetic Sculptures category.
