Fitting the Pattern (2008), Christine Wilks

Cutting through memories, pinning down facts, stitching fabrications, unpicking the past – an interactive, animated memoir, created in Flash, exploring aspects of the author’s relationship with her mother, a dressmaker. Life’s mysteries are rarely uncovered by a logical, linear process of deduction. You arrive at answers, ideas, suspicions, intuitions… haphazardly in fragments. Over time you build the picture, piece by piece, shuffling and rearranging, until you start to see a pattern emerging. The structure of ‘Fitting the Pattern’ attempts to replicate this experience, hence it is a memoir in pieces that the reader can explore.
