The use of bio-inspired computing offers a wide range of solutions and opportunities, both for scientists, who make an effort to understand and model nature, and for artists, who use nature as a source of inspiration. The use of a metaphor that is relevant for scientists and artists helps to bridge the gap between the scientific and artistic communities, and fosters the collaboration and transfer of knowledge between the two domains. This paper presents an overview of some of the Evolutionary Art projects I have been involved during the past thirteen years.
