Thomas Ockerse is a design professor at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. From 1967 to 1971, when he was an assistant professor of graphic design at Indiana University, Ockerse began to radically rethink education, the practice of design, and the world of art. He strove to erase conventional boundaries and to merge the arts and in so doing worked towards creating design that could be experienced both for practical and inspirational purposes. His deep involvement at that time with concrete poetry, Fluxus, mail art, happenings, book arts and other “intermedia” arts led to the creation of what Ockerse termed “word and image equations.”
