Futures 2084

No Future

No Future

Author: Sofía Giménez

“I was amazed, but not in a good way. Who knew that the man who sold me that doorknob to travel to the future was a scammer? Through the door, which I opened with the handle, my eyes met the fruit of the lack of awareness about caring for the environment. I did not dare to enter because from that future came a very hot air which I could barely tolerate. The world I saw seemed like something out of a post-apocalyptic movie. The few trees I could see were leafless and their branches looked weak. The buildings were destroyed and the air reaching me made it difficult to breathe. It was too difficult for me to see beyond because the lighting was poor. However, something that caught my attention was seeing a footprint relatively similar to that of a human foot. Although I had not seen any living beings, I assumed that it was most likely that some men and animals had adapted to the new reality by evolution. I deigned to close the door and put the handle on my nightstand. I went to look for the man who sold it to me to ask for an explanation but he had already left, and with him, the answers”.

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.
