Why We Build
We are builders, dreamers, creators, innovators, engineers, coders, artists, fabricators, welders, electricians, seamstresses, entrepreneurs… to ask why we build is to ask why a bird flies.
Building is Our Culture
We celebrate building. We see builders as the unsung heroes who create the future. We build to connect with people, as a sport with our besties. We’re technically advanced. We thrive on complexity. We analyze, we learn, we create. We dream what can’t be seen. Engineering creations pour out of us, with work and play becoming
indistinguishable from each other. We smile when others declare our ideas ridiculous – then we know we’re onto something good.
Inspire Our Children
"I have two young daughters, and they have grown up in a world of building. I wanted them to see that one could take a very normal looking bus and turn it into something fantastical. One day, on the highway, my daughter pointed ahead – “Look Papa, Another DiscoFish!” We caught up, and sure enough, it was another white E350 21 person bus, just like the base platform for DiscoFish. My daughter stared, incredulous, "Well? Aren't they going to do something with it?" Because, for the daughters of mutant vehicle builders, molding the common world into magical dreams is what we do." -Michael Worry
The Joy of Being Unreasonable
The next generation needs to see that life doesn't come in a shrink wrapped package from Amazon. We want people to know that the bigger and more ridiculous the dream, the more creative, talented, and brilliant people will be drawn to make it real. We say too much of society is focused on being reasonable, limiting thinking to what we can buy, looking for simple answers to complex problems, and being wastefully anxious trying to be normal. We want our community to share in the excitement and joy of being completely unreasonable, to know the power of bringing into reality that which many would consider impossible.
