A press release for an Irish exhibition of Sassen's pictures last fall explained that "the title of the series Parasomnia alludes to sleep disorders and occurrences of anomalous and unusual actions....[the images] are playful and skillful manipulations of the physical body to symbolize moments of ambiguity and disorientation...Within the images resides a latent force of sculptural stasis: the power of the body and the world it is held in. In Sassen’s Parasomnia, as with dreams, we are left in a place of uncertainty with an insistence on our own imaginative response."
