House of the Eternal Return: Inside The Technicolor Funhouse
Located in Santa Fe, Mexico is a home that will make you feel like you have fallen into another dimension.
Brought to you by art production company Meow Wolf, the immersive event/funhouse is an “attraction filled with art, technology, and fantastic environments to inspire visitors of all ages” according to their website.
The home is a former bowling alley, and the experience is entitled “House of the Eternal Return.” Meow Wolf states that the art is a “form of non-linear storytelling which unfolds through exploration, discovery and 20th century interactivity.”
The whole premise of the show is that something mysterious happened inside of the home that “dissolved the nature of time and space.”
Visitors are encouraged to travel through the Selig family home and discover weird passageways. You can choose your own path in the 20,000 square foot location. Each exhibition seen in the home will involve walking, climbing, and crawling.
Visitors can expect to “climb a spiral staircase inside a tree trunk that ascends to a spaceship cockpit” reports Thrillist. There is also a “kitchen refrigerator that’s actually a doorway to an inter-dimensional teleportation station.” Throughout every corner, there is a new sight to see that is sure to amaze you.
The installation is partly funded by Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. Not to worry though, there are no Red Wedding murders or random beheadings! Martin, a Santa Fe resident, gave “$3.5 million, plus another $2.5 million in city grants and Kickstarter funding.” The author’s funding also helped over 130 artists from the area create their pieces.
The House of Eternal Return is also acting as a new concert venue. There is a stage inside of the exhibit that allows bands to perform in a different environment.
