Media theorist Andreas Treske introduces the notion of “thickening of the video image” in his book “The Inner Life of Video Spheres” published by the Institute of Networked Cultures.

Now it is possible to compose the frame with on-line live interactive streams of data such as: videos, wikipedia, google maps, texts, video and hyperlinks.
