Futures 2084



Author: Aaron López

“In my imaginary future there is a potion of immortality which makes you not age. Also a world where the River Plate¬† club is champion of the Libertadores against Boca Junior, in addition to winning the Intercontinental Cup against Real Madrid. After the loss, Boca is relegated to Nacional B along with Racing Club de Avellaneda. I, along with my brother and our classmates from primary school, are going to watch a River game. The country finishes paying the debt it owes and we are once again a happy country. There are flying cars and those that can swim through water. Argentina wins its sixth World Cup, being captain and idol, Garnacho. You can also enter the mind through a chip, from where you can see all the archived moments or situations.” Aaron L√≥pez


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.
