Semente Exterminadora (Exterminator Seed) is a piece of speculative fiction that envisions a near future where human life unfolds among ecological disasters, transgenic cultivations, and androids. The narrative follows Capivara, an offshore oil rig worker who is evacuated back to Rio de Janeiro after an industrial accident, an oil spill which now threatens the Brazilian coast unbeknownst to the local population. After encountering YWY, a woman from the indigenous Guajajara nation, Capivara travels with her to Mato Grosso do Sul, her homeland, in search for employment in the extensive monoculture plantations. Against the backdrop of industrial agriculture, genetic colonialism, and shared prospects of infertility, the intimate interaction between the main characters engenders a queering of the borders between the natural and the artificial.
