Harm van den Dorpel talks to It’s Nice That
October 7, 2019
Harm van den Dorpel’s first foray into generative art happened when he was just 11, using text-based integrated development environments in the early 90s; those that came with white text over a blue background. “[I was] using QBasic, Turbo Pascal and later some assembly, because my computer was always too slow. At that time, I wasn’t really aware of that being art,” Harm tells It’s Nice That.
