Futures 2084



Author: Juan Cruz Manzano

“The 2080 … I imagine it with technological advances in both structures and objects. Cities would have a somewhat different appearance. There would be new and better appliances, much more advanced cell phones, televisions with an unimaginable screen and quality and some tools we didn’t know were possible to be made and that we considered out of reach. Another thing that I could expect would be a new, more useful and effective energy, but what I think would stand out or consider most important will be space exploration, solving and putting into practice some theories, ideas, equations, evaluating the possibility of space stations and exploring new planets. And perhaps, being able to observe a black hole by some explorers, allowing possibilities of exploration through it. But I think that will take more time, at least in being transmitted. The doors could open to a totally different world; it would be a true discovery. An other field in which I think we will advance would be medicine, increasing life expectancy and leaving behind diseases that today we consider serious.Juan Cruz Manzano


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.
