Futures 2084

Under the Dome

Under the Dome

Author: Juan Pablo Francisco Montesano

“I imagine that in 2084 the world is not going to be very well, with the atmosphere and all that due to environmental pollution, which is going to be almost destroying the atmosphere completely. So we are going to be under domes that enclose cities, which are going to have many buildings both underground and above ground. I think that buildings are going to be much more resistant to natural disasters such as earthquakes, with structures made of stronger materials. They are going to have a lot of windows so they are going to look more like blue or black. I estimate that transportation is also going to be very different. For example, there are going to be ‚Äútrain tracks‚ÄĚ that will be lines that carry transports resembling plates that travel fast, like at the speed of light, which will make the movement of people much easier. And since they will not consume gasoline, it will not be necessary to use cars or extract more fuel. I also think that other planets are going to get closer to Earth so that they can become habitable and we can live.” Juan Pablo Francisco Montesano


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.
