Art collective Meow Wolf cracks into alternate dimensions in Santa Fe. And it’s funded by George R.R. Martin — via Makezine

Meow Wolf, depending on what you’re referring to, is a collective, a business, a social group, a physical space for creating and educating, and an immersive art experience. What Meow Wolf is doing is nothing short of fantastical.

In a former bowling alley in Santa Fe, New Mexico, they’re building a Victorian house, and within that house they’re making rifts and creating explorable alternate dimensions. What at first might strike you as a typical family home reveals gateways to other worlds — a cave system with a glowing mastodon skeleton through the fireplace, a Star Trek inspired tourist agency through the fridge, a funky treehouse forest with mushroom drums.

Over these final days leading up to the exhibit’s opening, almost 100 artists have been working to finish the work on this surreal environment. “Carpenters are building elaborate pieces of CNC routed furniture. Our tech team is wiring low-voltage devices built around Arduinos and Raspberry Pi 2’s for audience interactivity. […] Tons of people are sawing wood, sculpting Skratch (an air-drying sculpting medium), or painting walls. It is all creativity all the time.
