We encounter some form of animation every time we turn on the television, go to a movie or surf the Internet, but how many of us understand how animation really works?

Beginning Jan. 30, Imagination Station (formerly COSI Toledo), invites visitors to explore the science behind the art with a new “Animation” exhibit.

Visitors can explore animation from concept to finished product – from storyboarding, character design and drawing techniques, to movement, timing, filming and sound. Larger-than-life graphics of popular Cartoon Network characters provide a colorful backdrop to the exhibit, which also explores the history of animation and features a screening room and a cartoon museum.

Math and science are fundamental to animation. Before producing an animated sequence, an animator plots out a character’s “path of action” on a grid. An animator creates characters in scale with their environments through the use of basic geometry and spatial sense. To illustrate convincing movement, animators apply knowledge of the physics of motion, and the science of human perception.
