Ambivalent Future

Author: María Agustina Ouviña Martelli

“I think that in the future the world is obviously not going to be the same as it is now. I could imagine many different scenarios about this, since it is not known exactly what it will be like, but everyone has their own ideas. I imagine the world in various ways. A negative way of seeing the future would be that people are not aware of the damage they do to the environment and the rest of living beings because they only think about what benefits them, for example, development of technology which would lead to a completely contaminated planet, in which it is not favorable to live as happens in the movie “Wall-e”. A positive way of seeing the future would be for humans to become aware of the environment and use technological advances to help us live in a healthy and technological world at the same time.María Agustina Ouviña Martelli


Visual Poetry received for the International Call for Visual Poetry 2084 Imagined Futures (2023), whose slogan was: “Imagine and send us your visual poetry creations from the future to our present. The time has come to occupy the future and allow your artistic vision to shape the world to come. Together we can transform dreams into reality.”
The call was organized by Aura Poesía Visual (http://aurapoesiavisual.blogspot.com/?m=0). We thank Ana Verónica Suárez and OmarOmar.

Visual poetry is a form of experimental artistic expression that combines visual and verbal elements to transmit a message with the image predominating over the verbal. Unlike traditional poetry, words can appear superimposed, deformed or combined with images and graphic elements (typefaces, photographs, illustrations, etc.) to create a poetic experience that transcends written language and its literal meaning.

Note: given that some of the visual poems have been delivered without a title, from the editing area of 2084 Futures Imagined from the South, we decided to give them a possible title with the intention of equaling them to others, simultaneously helping to distinguish them.
