Produced in conjunction with the Social Science Research Council's work on spirituality, political engagement, and public life, and the result of a collaboration between The Immanent Frame and Killing the Buddha, Frequencies is an experiment in which a broad group of writers, scholars, and artists were asked to produce a short essay on what comes to mind when they think of the word spirituality. The first one hundred responses were released over one hundred days and included essays on an extraordinary array of subjects, from John Cage to Beebe, Arkansas; Muhammad's hair to The Dr. Oz Show. Accompanying the essays are artworks selected from over 350 images submitted in response to an open call.
