Light, what makes up the visual world, is absent in the darkness. It becomes extremely difficult to see objects without light. However artist still want to observe something, so Liu Yue took the photo with the camera's utmost function to visualize (the highest speed, the slowest shutter speed, and the maximum aperture that allows more light). Now the picture doesn’t show us the expected object but there is a lot of image noise. Where do those intense unknown things come from? They may not belong to the darkness, but they are really climbing out of the darkness.
