It's a nouveau term for basically using narrow depth of field to control the area of interest. Unlike most photographic techniques, this one has a tendency to call attention to itself in any photograph.
The "ladybug" on Ladybug Rock in Cottonwood Wash down Gold Butte is the center of focus; but, the slightly out-of-focus massive rose quartz rock is still "highly present" in your mind and vision.
Here are some very effective uses of Bokeh photography. Perhaps you've taken some that you would like to share in the comments. They are basically achieved by using a very "short" lens [i.e. 50mm or lower] and a very "open" aperture [i.e. high shutter speed and open aperture = narrow depth of field].
