1 The Unaugmented Reality of Transgender Discrimination : ‘Do More, Do Better’ Rae White , Keira Edwards-Huolohan , 2018 single work criticism
— Appears in: Cordite Poetry Review , August no. 87 2018;

'‘Do more, do better’ is a poem in four parts that explores transgender discrimination through a hypothetical augmented reality (AR) mobile app. The accompanying inked and embroidered art pieces reiterate key themes within the poem using a medium that could be considered an analogue to tech culture’s digital: craftivism. In combining elements in alternate modes, the pieces point to the ways in which these media may have commonalities, but may also be divergent. This aligns with the subject matter of the poems, drawing as they do on the everyday experiences of trans and gender diverse folk within public spaces. Public spaces should be safe, but are instead revealed as fraught with the threat of, and direct instances of, public violence.'  (Introduction)

'In the bright mirror morning, I scratch
at flaked skin & peel lengths
of stringy flesh to expose
crackle quartz jutting from my neck
.

'In this highly original debut collection, Rae White’s edgy and playful poems challenge notions of category, identity, form and gender. Bodies transform, nature morphs and words dart and shift. White’s wise and provocative poems define new ways, new languages.' (Publication summary)
