Edit (June 19th 2013): MortgageBloom has been on hold for a few months while the team and I have been pursuing a more fulfilling opportunity, more details soon.

In October I left Facebook to found MortgageBloom. We’ve just launched our first product which is an extremely simple mortgage calculator.

We believe it is the easiest to use, simplest product of it’s kind. If you have any feedback, please let me know.

Here is some new art I’ve been working on for the last few months. Each image contains many billion simulated heartbeats.

These are artistic visualizations of chaotic equations which can be used to simulate cardiac rhythm (Circle Map).

I use PhantomJS to render these beauties in the browser with ProcessingJS. My original renderings are 103 Megapixel. I believe these might be the highest resolution images ever rendered in a web browser.

Let me know if you are doing this kind of work, I would love to chat.

The full resolution prints are for sale at my Redbubble gallery.

Here are some crops:
