Deus ex Machina (god from the machine) roared into Australia’s cultural consciousness in 2006, with some neatly customised motorcycles and a quaint notion that doing something is more fun than just owning something. Deus ex Machina is a step bigger than a brand: it’s a culture. Our openness and enthusiasm strike a chord with people, wherever they are... Deus (“day-us”) didn’t set out only to sell custom parts and hand- built motorcycles, but to celebrate a culture of creativity. The Deus philosophy recalls an era before the various pursuits of fun – motorcycling, surfing, skateboarding, whatever – were marketed into fundamentalist factions. All are welcomed under the Deus roof, where there’s simply respect for the honesty and enjoyment of the machine. Inclusiveness, authenticity, enthusiasm. It’s a simple and sincere pitch that has winged Deus ex Machina across the world. Deus ex Machina says simply there’s no ‘right way’ to do individualism, its all the same juice. Since opening the doors at the Camperdown Temple of Enthusiasm Deus has spread its own flavour of internally combustible postmodernism around the globe.
The Temple of Enthusiasm in Bali is the home of design and production for Deus surfcraft. With a fully contained shaping bay and glassing room the Temple has hosted a stellar cast of talented shapers over recent years including Josh Hall, Chris Garret, Thomas Bexon, Tyler Warren, Ellis Ericson, Rich Pavel and Bob McTavish. Each of these craftsman have brought their own unique skills to the Temple and left behind a quiver of remarkable boards from noseriders to displacement hulls to fat-railed fishes, all wearing the colours of Deus bespoke art.
