Meow Wolf, an artistic production company best known for its permanent installation House of Eternal Return in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has announced that their latest immersive experience is coming to Austin for the 2022 edition of South by Southwest (SXSW).
For the project, Meow Wolf is working in collaboration with Spatial, a company that creates immersive sound experiences. Both organizations have been tight-lipped about what this new experience will entail. In 2018, Meow Wolf offered several experiences at SXSW, including a screening of their documentary, Meow Wolf: Origin Story.
