NodeBox is a free application for producing generative art. This paper gives an overview of the nature-inspired functionality in NodeBox and the artworks we created using it. We demonstrate how it can be used for evolutionary computation in the context of computer games and art, and discuss some of our recent research with the aim to simulate (artistic) brainstorming using language processing techniques and semantic networks.
