Video designer and visual artist, Yragaël Gervais is a founding member of "La Station Magnétique", a digital and mechanical arts research and experimentation collective. Within this collective, he creates Super G, an anti-superhero which device (two cameras, one filming Super G, the other one filming what he sees) enables the unification of the traditional field and the reverse shot (Festival Arty'Show - Bordeaux, 2009).

He designs and makes with visual artist Sarah Grandjean, Presse Moi, an installation of illusion boxes, inaugurated in 2011 and complemented each year by new pieces (exhibits at Pierres vives - Montpellier, Maison Folie Wazemmes - Lille (2013), La Gaîté Lyrique - Paris (2015), Digital Week - Paris (2015), Académie Fratellini - Paris (2016)). Also for "La Station Magnétique" and with Sarah Grandjean, he conceives the Hyperscope, a spyglass like the ones proposed on tourist sites which allows reinterpretations of sceneries (Shadok's opening - Strasbourg (avril 2015), Art-Exprim - Paris (2017)) and creates the Traité de Mécanique Bancale, a short show for one puppet, a lot of video, an immersive soundtrack and some motors (La Condition des Soies - Avignon (juillet 2014), Orbis Pictus (2015), RéciDives (2016)).

He also proposes video designs and interactive devices for performing arts, mainly with companies such as Pseudonymo (David Girondin Moab), Le Bruit des Nuages (Olivier Thomas), Mesden (Laurent Bazin), L'Ateuchus (Virginie Schell & Gabriel Hermand- Priquet), Asa Djinnia (Uriel Barthélémi). His current work deals with holographic forms and ways of recreating and transforming bodily presences in video.

He's also developing with the cartoonist Victor Gurrey, a comic book called Terra Eolia.
