Hi, Depot artists. I watched your slot on the Sunday Arts program this afternoon. I quite enjoyed watching the process unfold and was surprised at how you managed to transform the depot in such a short time.
It must have been an interesting week to have such free reign on someone else's property at such a large site.
I have written a short article that refers to your Installation and Blog site on ArtSmelter - an artist collective blog - http://australianartistcollective.blogspot.com/
See ya - david

I've just seen the ABC doco, which unfortunately did/could not give enough coverage to the final results, it still managed though to bring to my attention a really fantastic project. I can only throw heaps of praise and admiration at all of you. As a "site-specific" artsist and curator of a number of projects in locations of historic interest in Sydney (Elizabeth Bay House, the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Australian Museum), I just have to say that you've all captured the very essence of what site-specific/responsive work is all about. To your credit, you've also fired the imaginatons of the workers who toiled there, and most importantly treated their workplace with a great deal of respect - even though the interventions were so radical. Thank you... it made my Sunday.

amazing work, really interesting, and, as it was said on the last comment, it really catches the whole idea of site-specific projects.
Here`s a project i worked in somehow related to your work:
