Hackett’s recent work focuses on body language, physical traits, and specific characteristics of selected animals as a structure to develop various multimedia works. Growing from initial impulses such as heart rates, body language, bones, and fur, the work pushes and pulls between the synthetic and the natural suspended in ambiguous hypnotic manifestations.

Oberndorfer works from his own personal history growing up in suburban Middle America, without risk or rebellion, he remembers wondering what it would be like to step outside the boundaries of his “sugarcoated” lifestyle. He describes his childhood heroes as those who questioned propriety and were “not known for their sweet and pleasant exterior but for the strength, confidence and conviction that lies beneath.”
