This research discusses the interactive online video projects Close Up and Noticing. Online environments are inherently fast facilitating immediate action through information, while Deleuze’s concept of the affection-image as a cinematic in-between allows time to expand between noticing and doing. The two works, Close Up and Noticing, use this concept of the affection-image to allow for affective experiences with online work expanding the time between the user watching (noticing) and clicking (doing). The theoretical frameworks of the digital and speed, and Deleuze’s concept of affect, are explored through these works allowing a means to theorise and make interactive online videos which slow the near instantaneous interplay between noticing and doing within an online context.
