After having collected the anonymous secrets of the visitors of Chez Urbain, Akay & Rae had decided to do the same with various bisontine street furniture. They then came to engrave these elements of the 8 chosen secrets before putting them back in the public space, in the eyes of passers-by. This project started several years ago by the two artists in Stockholm, Prague or Copenhagen and ended in Besançon in September 2013!
