Space War

Space War

Author: Francisco Barberis Acuña

“In 2088, in the distant future, the air was very polluted. The local population was very technologically developed. All human beings communicated in a language that was very difficult to speak and pronounce. The cities were very large and with tall buildings.
In 2048 it had been discovered that human beings were not alone but that unidentified beings called aliens existed. In 2089 there was a great war between humans and aliens. They were technologically more advanced than humans, with spaceships, laser rifles, etc. On the other hand, human beings only had airplanes, tanks and guns. In that war there was a great winner, the aliens. Humanity resulted reduced in number. There were very few humans since the war had caused millions of deaths, leaving humanity almost extinct. The cities were empty, the buildings broken.
In 2090 there was a great technological development with aliens called robots. The population was very mixed: aliens, robots and very few humans. The same thing also happened with the mixed culture later. By the year 2099 there was a space war with no winner, something very catastrophic. Everyone was dead and those who were left on Earth were dying due to the struggle for resources.” Francisco Barberis Acuña


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.
