Lahaye, Lieven; The heaviness of things and stuff, 2015
"When I was 18, I moved to the big city and immediately met a lot of record collectors. They measured the size of their collections by Ikea Expedit. "I have 2 expedits", "I have 3 expedits", "I have 5 expedits... and a short one for singles". Later, when I got my first full-time job at a library, most of my colleagues turned out to be book collectors and measured their collections by Ikea Billy."
"When I told my boss I was writing about collecting, she laughed and said "obviously!". What she referred to was my incessant need to collect all sorts of crap that is slated to be thrown out. Stacks of paper, piles of wood, xerox machines and a very broken Friso Kramer chair that - seriously - I will restore any day now. Although I did use the word "collect" here, this is really not collecting. It's hoaring - or - collecting stuff".
