Nature has demonstrated the capability to evolve high performance systems. In natural evolution, genetic information is used to control the growth and development of individuals, whose performance in the environment determines whether their genetic information is passed on to subsequent generations. In this paper an artificial biological model has been created. The model uses artificial genetic information to control the growth and development of continuous inhomogeneous structures, where sets of rules control the growth and development of the individual. Using this method a relatively simple artificial genome can give rise to highly complex structures without defining explicitly the final configuration and form convenient model for evolution.
