Futures 2084



Author: Candela Pilar Truglio

“In the year 2084 everything will end, it will be the END of the world, nothing will exist, not even us human beings. My supposed 76 years will not come, they will vanish in the attempt. All thanks to a nuclear war where there are no winners, only losers. From a war started with the world at its best, only a few minutes and a couple of bombs were enough to destroy the whole world. The first to disappear, after a single nuclear bomb, was America, followed by Europe and Asia. Following that, the rest of the world. We are going to suffer like we never imagined, in the most horrifying way. Some burned alive, others evaporated, we are all going to die in the year 2084. Neither the animals nor the plants will remain. The world will be nothingness itself, as at the beginning of everything, without any matter or elements, but simple darkness and how everything began will be the END.” Candela Pilar Truglio


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.
