Meow Wolf and Game of Thrones creator’s art exhibition is a glow-in-the-dark marvel!

Game of Thrones’ creator George RR Martin purchased and renovated an abandoned bowling alley in Santa Fe, US, now transformed into a humongous glow-in-the-dark exhibition titled “The House of Eternal Return”. Realised by Meow Wolf, it is not just any exhibition. This artist collective metamorphosed the space into a one-of-a-kind role playing art installation that is part haunted house and part choose your own adventure.
On arrival, you are narrated a story of the Selig Family, an imagined family that has gone missing and in turn dissolved the nature of time and space. Being given the “plot” that something strange has happened in their odd Victorian house as you venture into the bizarre 20,000 sq ft sprawling exhibition, you are teleported to a dim space replete with neon forests, outlandish plants and a 20-foot rabbit amongst many other multimedia art experiences.
Designed by a total of six writers and 150 artists, The House of Eternal Return is made for you to enjoy it physically unlike most art installations, truly making it unique. Without the help of guides or maps, you are encouraged to choose your own path by exploring, touching, walking, climbing and crawling in the exhibition that unfolds secret passages and doorways.
The Selig house is abundant with unpredictable surprises too, where floors ripple, lights come streaming out of drains, refrigerators lead to secret tunnels and even the toilets contain unexpected shocks. Appropriate for every age group, whether you like to explore it swiftly like a roller coaster or minutely like a detective, we suggest everyone a dekko of this out of the ordinary 21st century interactivity.
