"Computer Generated Structural Weave and Surface Design," the title itself is immensely broad and covers a very large area of study. The question asked at the beginning of this search was "What are the possibilities for textile design / fiber arts as far as the computer is concerned?" During the course of graduate school education, opportunities presented themselves to work on many different computer systems. Experimentation and creation of fiber art or surface design patterns have been produced on the Apple IIe, Artronic, Genigraphic, IBM, and Macintosh computers. Structural weave fiber art pieces have been designed on the Apple / AVL computer loom system and the Atari / Macomber computer loom system.
