Issue 10: Freedom

June 7, 2023 – June 6, 2024


 @forecastjournal |

Forecast Journal is a bi-annual, tangible, limited-edition experience. This hybrid literary, art, and academic journal is uniquely wide-ranging in genre, offering readers unexpected research approaches and experimental perspectives. Visual artists develop original ideas directly responding to each piece of writing; these ideas are then produced with Forecast, an art collective utilizing exclusively analogue formats—still and motion film, writing, fine art, and performance. Our mission is to support writers and artists with continuous, unlimited resources and approaches to idea-making, in order to augur collaborative, wise futures that inspire a global public.

With Issue 10, Forecast presents a unique collection of work addressing “freedom,” as a state of mind, as a practice, as a human and more than human right, and as a site of critique and hope. We’re also curious about what Freedom means to people personally and have published writing, photography and fine art that offers a more capacious way to think about freedom in a finite world. 

“Liberatory thinking, of course, is not new. And yet new approaches to the practice of freedom are still rare, and especially relevant now after three years of global pandemic and accelerating fascist ideologies. It is my belief that this collection of imaginative encounters with freedom can provide seeds for new and embodied philosophies of liberatory thought and practice.” 

— Kythe Heller, Editor-in-Chief 

Forecast Journal is the brainchild of editor-in-chief Kythe Heller and creative director Farida Amar. It is published by Forecast Foundation, a nonprofit organization established to provide unlimited resources to independent artists, forever. Issue 10 was first released January 2023 and only exists thanks to the creative contributions of 57 writers, visual and performance artists.

“Unearth blessings” is a demonstration of uniqueness and experimentation in Clairfoster Browne’s work. In this work, he combines his technique into different canvases that the artist then puts together. Colorful and impactful, “Unearth Blessings” becomes an unforgettable piece from the first time you look at it. 
Listen to the artist speak more on his work in our online exhibition “Future Memory” still available on our website. 
“Only through digging deep into the souls of humanity, understanding one’s pain, hardship, struggle, and sorrow will then began to unearth tremendous blessings throughout and within humanity”. 

Clairfoster Browne is somewhat of a mad scientist artist as he dabbles in everything from graffiti/live painting, to fine art, to general graphic design.  His artistic inspiration was sparked at a very young age, moved by the support of his fourth grade teacher. Through this support, he was able to explore the world of art, and he began to cultivate and refine his talent. Another important influence in his life was a visiting community leader from Africa whom Clairfoster hosted during his stay in Los Angeles and highlights an African Proverb taught by this individual, “If you want to travel fast… travel alone. If you want to travel far… travel with others.” 
Currently, Brown also works as a graphic designer and owns his own company, Klerforest, and a collaborative company, Unequal People. Additionally, he also mentors inner city youth through Faith in Christ Ministries and S.A.Y. Yes (Saving America’s Youth). In his work, he embodies living in a race-less world, that by inclusion rather than exclusion, we can travel much farther. He is particularly drawn to youth populations because he understands how his path was forged at an early age. He works with old, abandoned pieces of wood that have been discarded by the roadside, that transform into a depiction of Clairfoster’s perspective of life. “No matter where we all have been in our lives - broke, broken or discarded - we still can be reshaped”.

Link in our bio 🔗!
Miles Regis is a Los Angeles-based, Trinidad-born artist that seamlessly intertwines fine art and fashion design, utilizing a diverse array of materials to create large-scale mixed media paintings. His canvases feature dimensional collage elements such as denim, buttons, leather, printed matter, sequins, and eclectically sourced textiles. With a rich palette and gestural techniques, Regis crafts stylized renditions of fundamental scenes, conveying themes of love, loss, freedom, survival, activism, and living history. Rooted in humanism, his work draws from emotional experiences of exotic cultures, presented with a modern twist through stark black and white structures contrasted with vibrant hues.
Regis, known for his eye motifs, encourages viewers to delve deeper into his art. Beyond traditional mediums, he has embraced Virtual Reality, constructing interdimensional visual worlds layer by layer. This innovative approach, paired with his original electronic beats, results in kinetic and seductive journeys into Abstract Expressionism hyperspace. Regis’ creations adorn the permanent collections of Intel Corporation, California African American Museum, and Senegal’s La Musee Borindar. His art has been showcased at Art Basel Miami and Coachella Arts And Music Festival, and he has collaborated with entities like CNN, Art For Amnesty, Adobe, and Tonny Sorenson. Regis’ unique fusion of art forms and mediums marks him as a visionary in the contemporary art scene.
