Install two safes if their home. Lock each secret up in its own safe. Keep the codes to myself. The lovers will have to live with the other's secret. Close to hand but out of reach This work consists of two safes, an accompanying plaque installed in the home of a natural couple and a signed Letter of Agreement. Each safe must contain a secret in an envelope or other container given to Sophie Calle by each person representing one-half of the Couple. Neither half of the Couple has or shall have access to the secret of the other
