Futures 2084

Floating World

Author: Gabriel da Silva

“I imagine a future in 2084 in which climate change together with rising sea levels produced an obvious change in the world as we know it today, causing the disappearance of many major cities such as New York, Amsterdam, Washington, Paris, etc. Most of these decided to settle on the surface on floating rafts and some very advanced ones managed to make high towers in which they managed to stabilize their lives. But nothing will ever be like before since, for example, simple things like obtaining drinking water will become very complicated due to contamination due to the little solid space that will exist.Gabriel da Silva


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.
