“Year 2084. Much more advanced technology is incorporated into sports. In rugby we can see greater integration of technological systems to help referees make quick and accurate decisions on the field. For example, high-speed camera and sensor technology is incorporated to determine if a player crosses the goal line or commits a violation. Another addition is the implementation of sensors inside the ball and in the players’ uniforms to measure the speed of the players or the ball when a pass or kick is made, the distance and its location.” Tom√°s Maseda


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.
