Juandres said "I thought that this theme was perfect because everybody has played this game when we were children, maybe with little differences in the rules, but the general idea is about drawing the numbers inside squares using chalk. Then besides the human body jumping, you need a little stone or piece of wet paper for the game. As we all know it's important that our feet don't step out of the squares, so based on this, I figured out the outside area as an emptiness, a hole (I tried to create the effect of water on the first day of work), and with the optical illusion the result looks like a very extreme 'Bebeleche' where you better watch your step, hehe, instead of losing and ending up wet."
"From the point of view of the use of chalk to play this game, I think it’s one of the first (or the one) streetpainting that everyone of us do in our lifetime, so there is a connection to this game in all the places of the world where it is played, although nowadays these kind of games are losing popularity because of others options like videogames."
Since so many people around the world have played this game, we'd like to know what you call it in your country. Comment on this post and let us know!
