Active Sketch - Alec Rippberger

I would like to use light and sound with some type of sonar. What I would like to do is to create a semi-transparent sculpture of a heart. Within the heart there will be red LEDs which will blink in a "heart" rhythm, along with speakers that will produce synchronized "heart" sound. A sonar sensor will detect how close a viewer is to the heart and the arduino will speed up the rate of flashing and thumping as the viewer gets closer.
