O'Connor argues that social theory must come to terms with the new mobilities and speed of cinema, and the various ways in which the affect - as a virtual moment of collective experience - is inserted into the flow of movement and structures cinematic events

Daniel O'Connor's Mediated Associations draws heavily upon Gilles Deleuze's Cinema 1: The Movement-Image and Cinema 2: The Time-Image. O'Connor's project is based on Deleuze's theory of movement and time, drawing out the inherent social characteristics of the cinema books, while interjecting aspects of social theory to support and expand upon Deleuze's work. This reading of the cinema books as social theory, combined with O'Connor's employment of contemporary film examples, offers some valuable contributions to film studies.

Rather than focusing on the abstract and individualizing character of cinema, Mediated Associations elucidates the collective character of cinematic objects. O'Connor argues that social theory must come to terms with the new mobilities and speed of cinema, and the various ways in which the affect - as a virtual moment of collective experience - is inserted into the flow of movement and structures cinematic events. In considering the primacy of the affect to cinematic forms of power, he examines the way in which cinema controls our associations, reconstituting our manners and habits of sociality and sociability in subtle and complex ways.
