Futures 2084

The Rebirth of the Earth

The Rebirth of the Earth

Author: Juan Torrealba

“It will be a planet trying to recover and get ahead of a nuclear war due to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Russia will carry extensive weapons of mass destruction and after threats to other regions, the United States will attack it. After several attacks they will manage to take Moscow and carry out a coup d’√©tat. Later, in a last attempt to stay on its feet, Russia will decide to direct its nuclear weapons at the United States and other enemy nations. Because of this catastrophe, human life on Earth and very few animals will survive. They will try to better their environment and revive the Earth as a prosperous planet.” Juan Torrealba

 

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.

Clarification: 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.
