Books to Live

Author: Martina Barrera Oro

“Nowadays I imagine books, which in my view serve to mentally transport oneself to worlds of princesses, knights and dragons, in addition to helping to clear one’s mind and imagine. In the future, books continue to fulfill the same function but instead of traveling mentally, you can do it literally: as soon as you open the book, it teleports you to that world/universe in which you live an adventure story and returns you when the story ends.” Martina Barrera Oro


Visual Poetry received for the International Call for Visual Poetry 2084 Imagined Futures (2023), whose slogan was: ‚ÄúImagine 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.‚ÄĚ
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.
