Towards A More Encouraging and Inclusive Culture of Creative Expression: Sonic Interaction Design in Meow Wolf's House of Eternal Return

by Bergsund, Kyra

Abstract

In my thesis, I explored how the art collective, Meow Wolf, uses sonic interaction design in their interactive art destination, the House of Eternal Return, to facilitate positive ‘musicking’ experiences that empower and stimulate creative thinking for a broad audience. Using a mixture of on-site research and interviews I conducted and secondary literature I synthesized, I evaluate how experiencing the House of Eternal Return’s combination of fantastical physical sculpture, lights, electronic music, and sonic interaction technology engages a diverse audience in co-creation. I present the idea that Meow Wolf’s work is significant because increasing individual access to creative interaction opportunities has important implications for fostering a healthier society of creative minds.
