Mael  Henaff


I am a French artist based in London. My practice investigates emerging technologies through the cultural, social and ethical lenses. I am a designer, filmmaker and musician, currently lecturing on MA Material Futures and MA Regenerative Design at Central Saint Martins. I worked for various studios, such as Superflux and UP Projects.

My research has been exhibited at the Design Museum London, Tate Exchange Tate Modern, Milan Design Week, and Dubai Design Week. Using a storytelling-focused approach I produce speculative scenarios where technologies are hacked and democratised in order to start the critical debate on how we should use technology to benefit our communities.
