Robotic Rebellion

Robotic Rebellion

Author: Alejo Gonzalez

“Currently, world powers are developing very advanced artificial intelligence, to the point of developing robots capable of having a routine to satisfy their owners (most generally the richest). They also began to develop robots for battle and thus not put their population at risk. But in the year 2084, in China, there will be errors in the programming of the robots and these will begin to rebel, causing many deaths. These robots will begin to seize several territories due to their advanced techniques and their intellect will surpass that of humans themselves. As the dominance of robots advances, other countries will look for a cure. But robots will dominate the world. The country that will come closest to a cure will be England. Likewise, some people from the US, Norway, Germany, England and Spain will be able to travel to Mars, but it will be very difficult for them to start a new civilization.” Alejo Gonzalez


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.
