‘Happy Birthday to You’ is inspired by the similarities between nature and analog signals. Analog signals are a continuous physical flow. Nature changes just like an analog signal. Sunlight continuously gets brighter and dimmer. The same goes for the way a day goes, the seasons change, and the way all beings are born and die. Happy Birthday to You poetically represents the constant physical change of nature as analog signals. It proposes a new dialogue about the circularity and continuity of time and the relationship between nature and technology.
