Lost Rocks (2017-21) is an art project that engages readers, artists and audiences with the Natural Sciences, specifically the field of geology. Lost Rocks (2017-21) is a 5 year publishing project that invites 40 artists and writers to select a missing rock from a discarded Tasmanian rocks and minerals specimen board, formerly used for educating students of geology. Each artist is invited to research a missing rock or mineral, and compose a 96 page fictiönella in response, communicating new geological knowledge through creative, experimental and communicative texts. Lost Rocks (2017-21) is created by A Published Event, a collaboration between Margaret Woodward and Justy Phillips that specializes in writing, publishing and creative practice as a form of research.
