Lost Rocks (2017–21) is an ambitious, slow-publishing artwork – a library of forty books, four books published twice yearly for the next five years. Forty single traces, ten dynamic seams, or one spectacular forty-rock Lost Rocks Library. Brought to life by Australian artists Justy Phillips and Margaret Woodward (A Published Event) and composed by forty contemporary artists from around the world, Lost Rocks is an accumulative event of mineralogical, metaphysical and metallurgical telling.
In 2015, A Published Event found(ed) artists, Justy Phillips and Margaret Woodward as an experiment in speculative eventing. Their hybrid works – a kind of fusing-distilling-slagging of fictiō-critical writing, prose, book-works, video, installation and performance – explore the metaphysical language and speculative publishing of lived experience.
Justy Phillips is an artist, writer and publisher. She has a PhD: Scoreography: Compose-with a hole in the heart! (2015) from RMIT University, Melbourne and is currently an Adjunct Lecturer at the Tasmanian College of the Arts, UTAS.
