Welcome to The Boat

What is collecting? What is a collection? What does it mean to be a collector?

In this blog I will be interviewing people from all walks of life on the subject of collecting. I will ask them to share their personal experiences and opinions.

Some of the interviews will be transcribed from real life meetings, and some will be e-mail interviews, or pasted from Live Messenger. Some of them will be in English, and some of them will be in Danish.

The name of the blog was inspired by a poem by Gary Snyder, “Boat of a Million Years” from the collection “Mountains and Rivers Without End”.


My name is Bo Gorzelak Pedersen. I was born in 1971, and I currently live in Randers, Denmark. I graduated in History of Ideas from The University of Aarhus in 2000. My personal interests include the poetry of American poet Charles Olson, the music of Richard Wagner, and the philosophy of Martin Heidegger. Also, I am a Marquis de Sade collector.
