    What links Kickstarter, alternate dimensions, George R. R. Martin and the image you see above? House of Eternal Return, a new art exhibition in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    In House of Eternal Return, visitors explore a 20,000 square foot space, created by Meow Wolf, an arts production company focused on interactive multimedia experiences. The many environments within can be visited in any order, and tell a larger story. Created by dozens of artists, together they form a narrative of a family in the midst of a dimensional rift, and explores the theory of the multiverse through wormholes linking the exhibits. Installations are varied and interactive; one has a full-scale mastodon skeleton with musical ribs and light-up mushrooms, while many play with sound and visuals in interesting ways.

    Although ostensibly funded through Kickstarter last year, the project was only made possible thanks to Martin's involvement. The Song of Ice and Fire author purchased an old bowling alley, leased it out to Meow Wolf and partnered with the company on renovations.

    House of Eternal Return opened earlier this month, and is a permanent exhibit. Tickets range between $10-$18, depending on your age and whether you're a New Mexico resident.
