The chapter explores the role of deep mapping in interdisciplinary research – where interdisciplinarity is seen as a source of creative tension – specifically as concerned with rural older adults’ connectivity and, more generally, in relation to the social sciences. Our arts-based approach is located in terms of evoking and articulating connectivity and our engagement with older people discussed before considering process, both in terms of gathering and generating material and of subsequent creative processes. This is followed by more general reflections on process linked to understandings around relations to place. Creative works produced during the research are also presented, including the digital deep mapping hub, and their role in developing an understanding of multiple connectivities indicated. The chapter concludes with an examination of the broader implications of our work in terms of questions arising from these understandings.

Keywords:   digital deep mapping, older adults connectivity, creative tension, older people multiple perspectives
