About

Dave Zackin studied film and animation at the Rhode Island School of Design. His short film, Tunanooda, screened in over eighty film festivals including New Directors, New Films at Lincoln Center and the Kodak New Filmmakers' Showcase at Cannes, and won awards at the Student Emmies and the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Zackin's work has been featured in Chronicle Books' The Where, They Why, and The How, and in Time Out New York Magazine. He is the designer of the now ubiquitous City of New York Public Space Recycling Bins as well as numerous posters, stickers, and public health materials for the City of New York. 

Zackin's ceramic vessels and sculptures depicting invented old men and other characters celebrate the individuality and textures found in faces, while focusing on aging and the passage of time.
