Futures 2084

A Society Upside Down

A Society Upside Down

Author: Dariana Márquez

«In my mind, when I think about the future, I imagine society different from what we know today. In my modern society, called “Equilibria”, men and women reign in harmony, yet separated. Each city has bubbles interconnected by a glass wall that allows free communication between both worlds. In the bubble of women called “Apolis” elegance, grace and above all wisdom would reign. Its streets are adorned with beautiful gardens and crystal clear water fountains. Women are dedicated to education, medicine and the arts, carrying out scientific and revolutionary research, creating masterpieces that could move the entire modern world. On the other hand, the men of “Atelis” are ruled by strength, courage and inventiveness. Its avenues are full of imposing buildings and factories where the technological wonders of the world are carried out. Although at the same time standing out in engineering, exploration and defense of its territory». Dariana Márquez


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.
