George R.R. Martin, a man who has painted a vivid world wherein good people meet their grim end in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series is helping create an art installation that is prepared to blow your mind this very month.
From the minds of Meow Wolf comes the aptly titled Meow Wolf Art Complex, which will include a choose-your-own adventure kind of attraction called the House Of Eternal Return.
New Mexico’s Santa Fe community is famous for its beloved art culture. Now it will have an attraction that will dazzle the eye and invigorate the spirit.
As a press release announcing the March 18 unveiling reminds, the man behind the “Game of Thrones” phenomenon has offered his support to ensure this brilliant installation gets the kind of kickoff it deserves.
Martin teased, “House Of Eternal Return is going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before.”
Coming from the author who has inked some wildly inventive scenarios, that is truly saying something.
Meow Wolf is kind enough to share some images across its social channels:
Now for the details: Visitors keen on getting a glimpse at this wonderment can get their first peek at 2 p.m. March 18 at 1352 Rufina Circle. Tickets will run you up to $25 for opening weekend, which drops to $18 after that.
For the curious, Meow Wolf approached Martin in 2014 over the possibility of a permanent Meow Wolf building. Now the author will serve as the “landlord over the span of a 10-year lease.”
Book fans know this as roughly the amount of time it takes Martin to pump out a novel.
If you are wondering what the House of Eternal Return encompasses, it seems like it will include just about anything you can imagine.
Meow Wolf CEO Vince Kadlubek offered, “We will take people inside a sci-fi novel.”
And from the description, this seems to be the case.
The release promises the following: “You walk through the entry and stand in the front yard of a Victorian home. All is quiet except for the chirping of crickets. Entering the house, you see the living room where the uncle of the family often snoozes, but mystery builds when, in the dining room, you see scorch marks and a chandelier askew, caught in some corkscrew of time.The house and the family that lived there have been hit by a break in the time-space continuum, with wormholes attaching to the house that transport visitors through both time and space.”
Once completed, the installation will include the House of Eternal Return as well as the usual accoutrement for a place of this size: a learning center, project space, gift shop and even an area for live performances.
It’s essentially your Santa Fe one-stop shop for all things relating to the imagination.
