Liu Yue takes photos of daily objects in darkness with his cell phone and posts on WeChat everyday. Each piece is named by time (accurate to a second) and has its own unique time and space. Each of the original black photos will have a different look after being exposed. However, including the artist himself, no one knows the final result before being exposed.

Liu places those photos on the platform where Internet images interact fast. What we see are these black repetitive pictures, seemingly without any information. However, the content can be transformed afterwards. They come from the real world where they are shot. But they are now beyond recognition, and thus become unique. To Liu, this transforming process is beautiful and attractive.
