Game of Thrones author George RR Martin to build new worlds with Meow Wolf

They really sparked my interest and their vision pushed all my buttons – a sci-fi world spanning multiple universes
– George R.R. Martin

Game of Thrones author, George RR Martin, has taken up a position at immersive art collective, Meow Wolf, as 'chief world builder'.

Martin has been involved with Meow Wolf for more than a decade, helping to fund the collective in its early years.

Meow Wolf is comprised of around 300 employees who create and support art across a variety of media, including architecture, sculpture, painting, photography, video production, cross-reality (AR/VR/MR), music, audio engineering, narrative writing, costumin and performance.

Meow Wolf also builds visitor attractions, including the multidimensional House of Eternal Return in Santa Fé, New Mexico.

Vince Kadlubek, CEO at Meow Wolf, said the House of Eternal Return "wouldn't be what it is today without George's generous support", adding: "He took a chance on us and gave our artists the platform they needed to create the attraction. It's an honour to have him as part of our team and we can't wait to see what he can help us accomplish as chief world builder."

Martin said Meow Wolf captured his curiosity: "They really sparked my interest and their vision pushed all my buttons – the ambition to create a sci-fi world spanning multiple universes. They delivered something we've never seen before."

Meow Wolf said Martin's "unparalleled storytelling skills" will help to build narrative and "mind-bending ideas" that will deliver ambitious immersive installations.

In addition to the Santa Fe attraction, Meow Wolf created Kaleidoscape, an interactive art-themed ride and attraction at Denver's Elitch Gardens theme and waterpark.

It has also announced plans to open a permanent installation in Denver, as well as further venues in Las Vegas and Washington DC in 2020.
