Memory landscape is a composite landscape made of segments of environments that have significantly impacted my life.
Bachelard in his text The Poetics of Space, underlines the psychological value of memory and place. Remembering that Thoreau tells us ' he had the map of his fields engraved in his soul,' Bachelard maintains 'each one of us (then) should speak of his roads….; ' and underlining the psychological value of memory and place he suggests
'each one of us should make a surveyors map of his lost fields and meadows.' In this calling for a greater personal engagement with place Bachelard, perceiving landscape through dream and memory, recognizes the value of being aware of the landscapes we have inhabited. He maintains that through perceptive appreciation of the places we have left behind, we could achieve a healthy balance of reality, imagination and memory. Scientist Rupert Sheldrake also recognises the significance of our relationship with the environment, Sheldrake understands that our awareness of place transforms us into interactive components of that place 'Through our perceptions, the environment is brought within us, but we also extend outwards into the environment'
