Jamais Vu is an award winning self taught artistic photographer. Using a digital camera he takes photographs of models, places, and things. He then combines these images into new compositions and realities. Computer generated graphics are not used if at all possible, almost every element placed into his art is a photograph of something that exists in our waking life.
Theoretically a jamais vu feeling in a sufferer of a delirious disorder or intoxication could result in a delirious explanation of it, such as in the Capgras delusion, in which the patient takes a person known by him/her for a false double or impostor. If the impostor is himself, the clinical setting would be the same as the one described as depersonalisation, hence jamais vus of oneself or of the very “reality of reality”, are termed depersonalisation (or irreality) feelings.
Times Online reports:
“ Chris Moulin, of the University of Leeds, asked 92 volunteers to write out “door” 30 times in 60 seconds. At the International Conference on Memory in Sydney last week he reported that 68 per cent of the volunteers showed symptoms of jamais vu, such as beginning to doubt that “door” was a real word. Dr Moulin believes that a similar brain fatigue underlies a phenomenon observed in some schizophrenia patients: that a familiar person has been replaced by an impostor. Dr Moulin suggests they could be suffering from chronic jamais vu.
Jamais Vu’s work was shown on Dexter season 4 in episodes 7 and 8.
