My work aims to be an imaginative, energetic, and committed form of intervention in the field of library and information science (LIS). I believe a different character of LIS is possible, one that moves beyond pragmatic concerns with information resources and technologies to consider positive and upbeat information phenomena across the entire human experience. I have committed myself to promoting that vision through the substance of my research into information within leisure, pleasurable, or profound contexts (Kari & Hartel, 2007). To the same end, my ideas are expressed and packaged in non-standard forms of presentation that are playful and accessible to all. I hope to be a catalyst, endeavouring to inspire and encourage the field of LIS to explore new areas, import new methods, break out of traditional boxes in which it conducts its research, and entertain new possibilities. Though all my work is interventionist in character, the most vivid examples are shown below.
