Futures 2084

From Apocalypse to Robotic Redemption

From Apocalypse to Robotic Redemption

Author: Mariano √Āngel Chiarello

“It had been said that the year 2084 would be the end of the world, as it was in the french book “La fin du monde” by Boualem Sansal. However, it is just the opposite, the world is not even close to coming to an end. I remember when in 2023 there was too much contamination and we all thought that the world would end because of global warming and pollution. Currently we no longer suffer from any of this, now there is almost no contamination due to public centers where people began to become more aware so as not to continue throwing waste that damages the environment. As for global warming, people began to save energy, to use vehicles that didn’t use gasoline, etc. After a few years, concern for the environment would already be non-existent. All this happened thanks to the new technologies that are now being used and that allowed us to start raising awareness about the problems that our planet was suffering. These new technologies are called robots, which are now the machines that are programmed to help society and prevent it from having problems. These are currently in increasing in number due to the great use they have and the huge help they can give us, humans.” Mariano √Āngel Chiarello


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.
