Communication Designer Jan Mathias Steinforth, born 1977 in Hannover, Germany, is professionally experienced in multimedia and graphics design. Under his VJ alias of mateuniverse, he has been touring Europe for more than two years now. Starting off underground, his passion took him to Madrid. He has screened his moving pictures at various art and electronica festivals in Europe and abroad, and even on TV.
His visual style has been described as "deconstructionist abstract", with three-dimensional objects creating impressing effects of space and depth. His understanding of the art is deeply rooted in the attempt to be able to immediately respond visually to any given auditive and emotional situation.
