The Challenge of the Technological Gap

The Challenge of the Technological Gap

Author: Lucía Suárez Crocco

“I imagine a world in which buildings are more developed and more technological. It may happened that the buildings become holographic, and that they appear with a certain system. Also, surely cars that can fly or be faster will appear, and with certain advances that will have favorable functions. It’s probable that robots will take over the world and there will begin to be more robots and machines than humans, and all the things that we know today. Cell phones will be more advanced but will be used as this days. There are going to be jobs which are going to disappear because robots are going to do them faster and better. There are going to be technology-based crafts because the world will be much more technological. That will be so in the first-world countries, but in the third world countries, these advances may or may not come, and society and the economy may deteriorate to the point of crisis. I hope that all countries can be part of this new technological world because everything would be so much easier, more efficient and faster.” Luc√≠a Su√°rez Crocco


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.
