Towards a New Sensitivity

Towards a New Sensitivity

Author: Natalia Gavotti

“At long last, a few years ago, humanity revisited concepts concerned to beauty, regarding unnecessary cosmetic surgeries (of course, reconstructive surgeries are still performed in certain cases). In addition, beauty products (and their containers/packaging) must be organic, hypoallergenic and biodegradable.
Accepting the natural beauty that resides in each human being is part, on one hand, of praising individuality; and on the other, a new collective consciousness that does not insufflate manipulation and incitement to constant disagreement with one’s own being. By focusing on this issue, it would divert from other issues that humanity has reconsidered are much more important, such as how to reverse or minimize actions that negatively impact global climate change. Also, the use the financial resources of the great global fortunes to take action on social issues and thus guarantee that all participants of each social group have access to basic needs (food, shelter, health, education and security). What a beauty!” Natalia Gavotti

 

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.
