Freelance graphic designer Nerea Palacios used the Nike football uniform as a canvas to express the essence of each of the iconic houses on the HBO series as if they were teams perhaps partaking in the FIFA World Cup series.
From Renato Stockler:
A “terrao" is an oasis in the urban landscape. The reddish tone of a soccer field turns into a stage for the resistance of popular soccer. These fields are increasingly rare to see because of property speculation and land occupation. Some of them have their own football clubs, while others are public spots. Some of them are mainly dirt, while others are of sand and weathered grass. But they are a breath for the hard daily life of those who live in the outskirts of Sao Paulo. These fields show the urgency for public and communal places to practice sports, a portrait of those who fight for leisure in a city as Sao Paulo. Colored and powerful in the face of the greyish scenario, these fields are a solid basis of soccer’s spirit in Brasil. It’s not hard to find friends, relatives, adults and children cheering together for their local teams. Even through social and political difficulties, a “terrao" shows us the real soccer, far away from a society mediated by powerful media groups. The rawness of a “terrao"can't be fitted as a media spectacle.
Six HD cameras fitted inside a new World Cup adidas ball, called “brazucam,” will show an entirely new angle on the beautiful game as it tours the world, through Spain, Japan, Germany, and Mexico on its way to Brazil.
