Subjectio is an experimental online storytelling project by digital designer David Veneman and multimedia journalist Pierre Crom. They share a mutual interest in methods used by superpowers to control and manipulate the representation of the truth.

David Veneman

David Veneman is a graphic designer and digital artist based in The Netherlands. He works with different kinds of projects including online performance, installation and Internet art. Veneman works is based at the intersection of “social” and social fabric that connects people. The aim of his work is to understand the perception of connections that we encounter online and try to prove that the trust is interfered by the capacities that digital technologies bring us. Thus the companies that provide online communication and distribution of content start to play a key role.
