Thinking about this concept in terms of film, camera movement could be used to manipulate the passage of time. In the same way that the panel runs off the page, you could move the camera in a way that moves the subject(s) out of frame to suggest that some time has passed before the next shot happens. This effect could be used to transition to a shot at a different location, or even an identical shot at the same location. The shot could be held off the subjects (out a window, at the sky, at a different subject, etc.) or a fade-to-black effect could be added to lengthen the empty space as long as you might want.
Another technique that could be taken from this is to make the shot farther away. If the shot is wider, more objects and subjects can be inserted into the frame, making the viewer take more time to process what is happening and what is in the shot, which will make the shot seem to take longer. Conversely, you could have a shot be closer to the subject to focus on something important and get rid of unnecessary things that might distract the viewer.
