Madacsi Box

David Madasci opening up his Bouy box

Poetry box by David Madasci

Rising waters churn,

Tenuous moorings straining...

Oblivious storm.

Poetry box and poem by David Madacsi. Following a full academic career in the discipline of physics, University of Connecticut professor emeritus David Madacsi has spent the last ten years actively pursuing an encore career in the visual arts. His creative work, including photography, found object assemblage, and environmental installation, is often informed by his insight into the workings of the physical world. He also writes and lectures on the subject of “the interconnectedness of light, art, and place.” David is the co-founder (1993) and associate curator of the Alexey von Schlippe Gallery of Art at UConn Avery Point. He is an elected artist member of both the Mystic Arts Center and of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, and is a fellow of the I-Park Artists’ Enclave. He has benefited from numerous artist residencies, most recently a month as a resident artist at the Cill Rialaig Project in Ballinskelligs, County Kerry, Ireland--where he experienced and attempted to photograph “the soft light of Ireland.”
