Creativity and Digital Technology

Naomi Barnes discusses on the supposed freedoms provided by the web. Discussing the work of Gardner and Davis, it is suggested that the app generation brings with it its own creative constructs.

Digital apps and worlds, have boundaries (or scaffolds) – no matter how vast, no matter how much the creator allows manipulation of story lines and sharing of ideas. There are limitations because a finite number of people created the experience and those creators have finite imaginations, limited further by the capabilities of digital tools. There are limitations imposed by the re-creators themselves through language and the homogeny of the sites they settle on and continue to return to. It might not feel finite…but it is.Source
