'Pavor Nocturnus' is a documentary that explores, through the analogy of 'vampirism', the artists own sleep disorder. Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder is a circadian rhythm disorder which delays sleep onset times. In essence a DSPD sufferer lives in a constant state of jet-lag. Due to DSPD the artist lives a 'vampire lifestyle', rising at night time, sometimes working the night-shift and sleeping throughout the day. Pavor Nocturnus, which translates as 'night terrors', is a slideshow and installation comprising 80 images, which gives the viewer a glimpse of living at night, with the artist documenting the things and people he encounters.
