About this project

Hey y'All ~ !

Did you ride The Pilot Fish last year? That was us...our first glorious year. We got a TON of "you are the first art car to let us on board", and "riding with you has definitely been a peak experience for me". In order to build it and get it to you for the first time last year, we paid for the whole enchilada ourselves. I'll refrain from dropping a figure, but suffice it to say, it's a bonafide mid-life crisis, status symbol. Building it cost a small fortune, but transporting it is a substancial expense, well well; we have to rent a gargantuan trailer for two weeks and then the fuel...)=. We didn't ask for any financial support last year, because, well, The Pilot Fish didn't exist yet... But this year, since you know we're legit and fabulous, give us a hand on our second tour. We are going to do a bunch of upgrades to the sound system, lights, and the suspension for the tail, and of course we need to get the son of a gun there.


Unlike some of the Mutant Vehicles at Burning Man, we have a 'first come first serve' policy and EVERYONE is welcome on board!  So please contribute what you can, and hop on when you see us at BRC!

Vegetable rights and peace,

The Pilot Fish Team

Risks and challenges

No matter what, we will make it out the BRC. The extreme climate comes with unforeseen challenges that we will prepare for to the best of our ability. Fortunately, we have a very handy crew at BRC that can fix any problem that might arise.
