VIP Bubbles

“In the future I see a city where there is plenty of food and resources, where technology and medicine are so advanced that life expectancy is up to 150 years and people over 50 are beginning to be considered adults. But in the whole world there is only one city like this, and only people with high political positions or wealthy people can get there. The problem is that these people only occupy 3% of the population. The rest of the population lives in the suburbs of the city or tries to harvest food. It is almost impossible to harvest because the land was ruined by the explosions of World War III. The people who want to enter the city can’t since it is surrounded by a bubble that protects its air and land from radiation. The people who live in the city do not know about the existence of the other part of the world since only the president knows this.” Lara Mendiondo Girolami


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.
