Corail Artefact is a project that reunites Art, Science Industry and Education.
Its purpose is to try to find a solution for coral reef disappearance and degradation in the world. To do so, its creator, Jeremy Gobé, invented a support for coral reef reproduction. Everything started when Jeremy Gobé figured out that the lace call “spirit point” was very similar to the coral that inspired is work as an artist. So, with multiple partners, they starting testing his idea. They use a traditional cotton lace with coral alike pattern and a bio-mimetic aspect before putting it in contact with coral at different state of life.
Thanks to these tests, Jeremy Gobé and his team figured out that, indeed, coral can grow on the lace. The advantage of using a lace, is that it can be weave in vegetal fibber, and in that case, biodegrade in water once the coral reef is generate enough.
Corail Artefact is collaborating with Codif Technologie Naturelle to create new sample of these lace coral reef regeneration supports. Jérémy Gobé has indeed identified natural extracts produced by the company which, integrated into these supports, could increase their performance, while respecting the environment.
Since September 2020, both organizations are working together to identify, product and integrate in the coral reef regeneration supports, Made in Brittany, extracts of marine origin. The new samples of lace created thank to this collaboration are now tested in Guadeloupe, in an outdoor seawater aquarium, as close as possible to real conditions.
Codif Technologie Naturelle is very proud to be part of this experience with Corail Artefact and to be able to commit with association that share the same values.
