This paper outlines some early thoughts of the author, Joe Randall, on this theme, and incorporates suggestions and elements of the discussion that followed. It begins by taking a view on what we should consider digital art and creative technology, and distinguishes between the use of technology as a tool and as a medium. The paper then goes on to outline some of the issues that digital artists work with older people to challenge and explore. It outlines three of these: the digital divide; isolation and
loneliness; and the relative disengagement of older people within an increasingly important part of
mainstream artistic practice.
