an art-sciences-industry-education project
to save the coral reefs.
With his intuition and guided by his societal approach to art, the artist Jérémy Gobé imagines the Corail Artefact project: a global solution - art, science, industry and education - the objective being to fight against the disappearance of corals. To do this, it creates an endowment fund and a company in order to develop research (artistic, scientific and industrial) and awareness-raising actions (with schoolchildren and the general public) of the project..

take inspiration from nature to respond to our contemporary issues.
Coral reefs and barriers span more than 150,000 kilometers of coastline in more than 100 countries and territories. The largest and best known of these formations, the Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Australia, extends over some 2000 km. Coral reefs dramatically reduce damage from storms and hurricanes, as well as absorb the devastating energy of tsunamis. Without this, some atoll countries, such as the Maldives, Kiribati, Tuvalu and the Marshall Islands, would no longer exist. Like forests, coral reefs are great CO2 sensors. They are home to 25% of marine biodiversity. If we do not act urgently to reduce the effects of global warming, pollution, overfishing and other threats, those organisms where life is prosperous will disappear.
