I first learned of generative art in my last year of University. In my 4th year English class we were tasked with writing a thesis on a topic of our choosing. I think it had to fall under something related to the class, but somehow I shoehorned my thesis into talking about Generative Art. I managed to find a copy of Generative Design in the school library and took it out for a few weeks. At the time I could not code yet it was a good start that I look back fondly on.
