Futures 2084



Author: Fernanda de Broussais

“I include this brief text based on my latest published book, El Mal del Cari√Īo (Ediciones Ombligo Cuadrado, 2020) that takes place in a possible future in which Argentina is called Cybern√≠a and the present, past and future times constantly intermingle, thus passing a magical and extravagant reality: Aerial metaphors are at the time of day. The words float, pile up and form clouds of letters that rain over Cybern√≠a, giving new names to the streets. The chronology is altered. What happened yesterday is happening tomorrow. Now never stops happening. The sparrows fold their wings, bewildered. Trees become seeds and dry, all at the same time.” Fernanda de Broussais


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.
