Pauline Hégaret was born in 1987  en  France

I started a professional artistic career at the age of 18. Passionate about science and nature, I also studied anthropology and political science in France and Brazil.
I am very interested in media arts. I lead projects at the crossroads of arts and social sciences and create devices questioning our relationship to changes through the prism of anthropology. I also conduct an aesthetic and scientific research around erosion (of coastlines, materials, biodiversity), the formation of clouds and anthropogenic clouds and study their impacts since 2012. These researches are concretized during residencies, in sound performances and installations, internet applications, pastiche video games or paintings and video tours.

Today, I am a visual artist and designer, and I also have a state diploma in architecture.


I created a company in the field of marine biotechnologies based in Brest.

This project is housed at ENSTA Brest, the national navy engineering school.
