After working on the exhibition site, the artists spoke what was

As I have spoken on my feelings toward Demeter many times

before, Demeter has outstanding qualities, and everything was
prepared so that we could work efficiently. Even well-known international
art exhibitions do not offer this kind of well-organized support.
We would like to thank all the people in the Demeter Office, people
who supported us for the installation in the square of Obihiro
Station, and Yotsuba Milk Products Co., Ltd for all their support
and cooperation. We would like to invite the volunteer staff members
to Germany for the next project.

They have said to their friend in Tokyo that they have been very
satisfied with the exhibition, horserace track, and the Mongolian
tent in which they exhibited Three Windows. They also said that
it gave them a new perspective on Japan. They drew pictures to
explain about the exhibition. They said that they are very grateful
for all the support they received at Demeter.
