Journey to the Past of the Future of Mars

Journey to the Past of the Future of Mars

Author: Matías Anselmo Goñi

“On December 3, 2046, travel to the past was invented. This invention revolutionized history and science forever. It was never thought we would achieve such a scientific feat. The first travel machine to the past was launched on August 24, 2047. On this trip they sent 5 men to the past to investigate Mars.
On the day of the first launch of the machine, a celebration party was organized, attended by 10 thousand people. It departed at 2 p.m. The men entered the ship and prepared themselves. The countdown lasted 10 seconds; the rocket took off and began the journey. Once on Mars, they installed scientific research bases and made a space route that connects to Earth. Thanks to this path, it is possible to travel quickly today given the technology of that time. After a few years, by 2084, there were civilizations of thousands of people living there.” Matías Anselmo Goñi


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.
