Paravel and Castaing-Taylor collaborate as filmmakers in the Sensory Ethnography Laboratory. Their work seeks to conjugate art's negative capability with an ethnographic attachment to the flux of life. Their films and videos have been screened at AFI, BAFICI, Berlin, CPH:DOX, Locarno, New York, Toronto, Vienna and other film festivals. They have received theatrical distribution and been broadcast on television in the USA, Canada, UK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Japan, and throughout Latin America; are in the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art and the British Museum; have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, London's Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Whitney Museum, the Centre Pompidou, the Berlin Kunsthalle, the Whitechapel Gallery, and PS1; and have formed the subject of symposia at the Smithsonian Institution, the Musée du quai Branly, and the British Museum. Their film Leviathan was released theatrically in 2013, and won the FIPRESCI (International Film Critics) Award of Locarno International Film Festival, the Michael Powell Award of the Edinburgh Film Festival, New Vision Award of CPH:DOX, the Silva Puma for Best Film in FICUNAM, the Los Angeles Film Critics' Circle Douglas Edwards Independent and Experimental Film Award, and sixteen other awards. Additional awards for their work include the 2013 True Vision Award, the 2013 Alpert Award in the Arts, and a Guggenheim Fellowship (2012). In 2015, they completed a monumental site-specific installation, Ah humanity!, with Ernst Karel, a work that takes the 3/11/11 disaster as its point of departure and reflects on the fragility and folly of humanity in the Age of the Anthropocene. It has been installed at the National Archives of France in the Cour d'Honneur of the Hôtel de Soubise in Paris, as well as in Tokyo, Japan, and in Cambridge, MA, USA. Their latest works, commissioned by documenta 14, are somniloquies (2017) and Commensal (2017).
