Joseph's inspiration for this sculpture revolved around the concept of the vibrations and movement throughout life.

Frequency was one of thirteen sculptures featured in the 2014 Art on the Campus exhibit. Upon completion of the exhibit, the Public Arts Advisory Commission purchased Frequency and it became the second acquisition in the West Des Moines public art permanent collection.  Frequency is located near the front entrance of the West Des Moines Library where many patrons enjoy moving the vertical rods to create varying sound frequencies.
