I’m Ruta Danyte, an emerging writer of modern poetry. My work is influenced by the digital culture, ancient philosophy, and most lately – nature. The tone and topics I express aim to spark questions about human wellbeing at the age of artificial intelligence.
Poetry I write is new in three ways: the form, the process and the topics. The form of poems is based on abstractions that communicate the essence of human feelings and social behaviours in as few words as possible (2018); in 2019 the form includes emojis and changes the tone. The process is mobile-based and serves as a lifelogging experience that connects the artist with the audience in real-time. The topics are inspired by an on-going 10 years self-experimentation with technology, health, work and education, social life (2018); in 2019 the topics include the connection with the natural worlds.
My ambition is to use poetry as the universal language for a dialogue about human wellbeing in the digital age we live in. I self-published a book Banana Break in 2016, 2 poems in 2017, 79 poems in 2019, 90 poems in 2019 (and counting).
