Futures 2084



Author: Juan Ignacio Gómez Siri

“Sometimes I think about what the world will be like in 2084; surely we will all be connected virtually but there will not be as much face-to-face contact; that will surely be lost like in these days. There will be no need to go to classes in person or perhaps they will insert a chip into our body with all the necessary information about our study’s object. The same will happen with languages; we can know several just by buying the chip we want. Bicycles and rollers will no longer exist; there will be flying bikes and rollers. Trucks and trains will be driven by a computer. There will not be as much pollution since garbage will disintegrate instantly. There will be robots with human appearance and a lot of artificial intelligence.” Juan Ignacio G√≥mez Siri


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.

Clarification: 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.
