Futures 2084



Author: Lola Romero  Ruitti

“After decades of disaster and destruction on Earth, I imagine our future will hold the extinction of the animal race, overcrowded cities, extreme pollution, and fundamentally, an excessive amount of flooding due to high sea levels. Due to the great dystopia that these factors would cause, mainly the fact of having to live underwater, the only thing that generates some hope in terrestrials is advanced technology, which would be believed capable of preventing the disaster.” Lola Romero¬† Ruitti


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.
