Daily Seed was a monthly zine series, featuring algorithmically generated non-linear narratives, for each day of the month, using the seed data from the Black Feminist World Database. Daily Seed featured a risograph printed cover with images of Black feminists embedded into the quilts of Gee’s Bend as an experiment in polycultural and abolitionist aesthetics. Through collaborating with the computer to sculpt nonlinear narrative one can remember the history of Black feminist worldbuilding work and use seed data as source material to play with language, inspire alternative forms, and imagine new worlds. Daily Seed takes its name from Seeda Press and Daily Bread (a monthly devotional publication), supporting multiple functions this project can be used for learning, meditations, and ceremonies of reverence and remembrance.
Daily Seed was printed during a community printmaking residency at Studio Two Three in Richmond, Virginia.
