FORTH Magazine

FORTH was created to explore, examine, and expose the work of both established and up-and-coming artists and writers. Through these digital pages, we take readers into the world of the author, the mind of the poet, the vision of the artist, to gain a unique perspective of the often intriguing, sometimes haunting, always strange, little worlds of our most innovative creators. Our mission is to support writers and artists by exposing their work and exploring their lives, and to maintain a recurring set of innovative writers and journalists that you'll only see in our pages. Our content isn't classical or traditional. We publish short format writing for the modern reader and contemporary art that challenges the modern onlooker. Founded in Los Angeles, CA in 2009, FORTH represents art and literature in a way that resonates with an evolving need for interactive media. The West Coast is on the scene. Welcome and enjoy!

In Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, spatial intelligence is the “ability to visualize with the mind’s eye.” A trait dominated by xy, architects, mathematicians, scientists, and the blind. In this week’s Foto Friday we take a look into the androgyny that lies hidden within the pockets of American culture. A secret, happy society of tomgirls and boys. Though they may bound…

Each one of us is a grid of selves, a messy flux of psychic debris. These selves follow us everywhere—the cautious among them prodding for corners and edges, the adventurous taking chances. They pass through us like ghosts, massaging the heart, tugging an arm, influencing our every movement and decision. Japanese artist Daisuke Takakura plays…

In this week’s Foto Friday, we reflect on the discerning “Life Is Short” memento framed in every break room of every LLC, C CORP, S CORP, and SLVSHP. A reminder that one day you will die, an idiot signifying nothing. And everything you knew and everything you know will cease to exist; even the sky,…

Dear Data Project: Artwork by Giorgia Lupi & Stefanie Posavec

/

Though Ray Johnson is considered to be the first mail artist, it was Cleopatra in 47 BC who first had herself delivered to Juilus Caesar in a rolled-up carpet, thereafter becoming his mistress. An elusive art form, Correspondence Art, Arte Postale, or Post-Kunst, is dependent upon the interconnectedness of a global community. What Fluxman Robert…

This weekend, remember to look closely to see and be vulnerable to the…
