Le Jardin des Deux Rives was a new park split in two by a river, on the french side is Strasbourg, the german side, Kiel. In 2004 the two cities joined to commission several artists to make work for the park. Drink/Sleep was sited on the French side of the river. It has two parts. One project is a maze-like arrangement of multiple concrete drinking fountains with multiple spouts (Drink), the other is a group of interconnecting lounges for reclining (Sleep) The two arranged the park go-er in intimate configurations while providing public amenities for public use.
