Futures 2084

Nothing

Nothing

Author: Josefina Chuburu Carbajal

“In the future I imagine that nothing will exist. Destroyed cities, abandoned buildings and unpleasant smoke that is everywhere. What would have happened is that humans, in their ambition to continue advancing technologically, created environmentally unsustainable machines that use non-renewable natural resources in excess and release certain polluting gases that damage the Earth’s atmosphere. Over time, these machines contaminate the environment so much that it begins to be uninhabitable for human beings, who begin to die until they reach extinction. Land animals followed. Since there were no humans to control them, many toxic substances fell into the seas and rivers, which caused the extinction of aquatic animals as well. And that is how the planet was completely destroyed, without any type of beings alive in it.” Josefina Chuburu Carbajal

 

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.
