This research investigates the potential of eye tracking as an interface to parameter search in visual design. We outline our experimental framework where a user's gaze acts as guiding feedback mechanism in an exploration of the state space of parametric designs. A small scale pilot study was carried out where participants in uence the evolution of generative patterns by looking at a screen while having their eyes tracked. Preliminary findings suggest that although our eye tracking system can be used to e ectively navigate small areas of a parametric design's state-space, there are challenges to overcome before such a system is practical in a design context. Finally we outline future directions of this research.
