Utter nonsense. It was an office building with no showers and, more important, a huge crew who would have noticed an unrented space being occupied by squatters. Simply impossible in a building such as this one was.

Did they live in WTC 1 or WTC and did they also have access to WTC7?
From 2010, curator of the exhibition series SIGN IN ROOM at the Galerie Christine König, Vienna. . . .
At 6 o'clock one morning, Austrian art group gelatin suctioned out a window on one of the top floors of the World Trade Center, shunted out a narrow balcony constructed of smuggled building materials, and posed on it while a helicopter flew by and took their photographs. An unbelievable, completely illegal, and fully secret stunt when it was performed, "The B-Thing" is now unbearably surreal, weirdly prescient, and forever unrepeatable.

They were squatting there illegally.
Or so the story goes...
Still, how did a balcony escape the notice of one of the most security-conscious office towers in the world? An examination of the security system revealed that it was focused on the ground floor and basement, Mr. Janka said, adding, ''There's no surveillance on the facade itself.''
That is true, said Cherrie Nanninga, the director of real estate for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which until recently ran the World Trade Center. Port Authority officials, shown a copy of ''The B-Thing'' by a reporter, reacted with disbelief, then outrage. Although their own investigation turned up no evidence, Ms. Nanninga said, ''we have no reason to believe it didn't happen.''
Window removal is considered so dangerous that when it is done the streets below are cordoned off, she said. ''It was really a stupid and irrational act that in my view borders on the criminal,'' she said, adding that the stunt had jeopardized the studio program, whose space is donated by the Trade Center.
Here is another link with a photo of the balcony taken from a helcopter, a drawing which is a rough plan of how it worked, and an explanation of how it was installed.

So were they Mossad agents or artists?
