Summary/Abstract: The media model not only the typical exchange processes, but also the forms. These include pictures within screens and monitors – objects such as three‑dimensional holograms, and multisensory media events. What becomes important is picture as a formula. Its presence in culture includes the motion of presenting the world and the order of the world picture. It reflects the contemporary human attitude to entities, and the conditions sufficient for the knowledge of the truth about entities, within the framework of this reference. Globalism links this attitude and the conditions not with the man, but rather with technology, its devices and its products. This is why the text undertakes to describe the technical pictures of the subsequent generations from the perspective of material and objects. The adopted aspect reveals traditional space patterns in the media forms. Among them are palimpsest, maza, rhizome, maze, Renaissance wardrobe… Digital images, on the other hand, turn out to be a field of reiterating culture by means of (re)writing and (re)playing it.
