In this set of books the authoer responds to Joseph Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness. In the first publication Unsound Method I - the pages are redacted in white and only words associated with light - day, bright, sun, morning and so on - remain visible, carving out a poem which was always present in the material of the original novel. In Unsound Method II the pages are again redacted, this time in black, and leaving only words associated with darkness - night, gloom, shadow, black and so on - as visible traces on the page.
