(Oklahoma City) - Identifying the patterns and contradictions in everyday life requires both an eager mind and active imagination. Science Museum Oklahoma's newest traveling exhibit, the Oklahoma Museum Network's interactive Imagination Station, is an eye-opening experience that highlights the remarkable interconnectivity between the art and science of light and sound. 

Imagination Station explores the intricate relationship between our eyes and brain’s interpretation of images. A variety of color mixing and perception experiments help visitors rekindle their creative curiosity.  Music takes center stage as sound vibrations, typically invisible to the human eye, are converted into visible waves revealing an amazing array of hidden patterns. Visitors’ also experience total immersion in innovative, body-driven interactive artwork that reacts to shadows as if they were solid.

Imagination Station will be on display at Science Museum Oklahoma from November through February of next year. The exhibit includes hands-on activities ranging from an interactive projection touch screen to multiple xylophones.

Imagination Station is one of five exhibits designed to rotate among the Oklahoma Museum Network’s partner museums. The Oklahoma Museum Network, funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, members include: Science Museum Oklahoma in Oklahoma City, Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum in Seminole, Leonardo’s Discovery Warehouse in Enid, Museum of the Great Plains in Lawton, and Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium in Tulsa. Each museum is committed to providing hands-on discovery learning to Oklahoma families, students and educators. For more information visit the website www.oklahomamuseumnetwork.org.
