Imperfect Future

Imperfect Future

Author: Avril Martina Carugo

“It seemed that everything was going well in 2030. There was a beautiful future since it was a place with little pollution, world peace, and where poverty was the past. AI and robots helped in this with the skills and thoughts that humans gave them. In 2084 everything changed. It seemed like a future with various probabilities. The robots were not evolving, that is, they did not have the skills or thoughts necessary for that current world, so they were wandering on the street, helping with what was useful in 2030, such as lifting the trash. In 2084, people were not the same either, so without AI they could not do anything or create any more. The AIs managed it by being more and more human and thus humanity was in decline, with more poor people, wars, pollution and little ability to reason, totally controlled.” Avril Martina Carugo


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.
