COLLECTIBLE [fr. collectible]

A collectible is an already made item,
endowed with the proper attributes to be defined as an element
in the set of any defined category of objects.
Art is collectibles.
Art is collectibles because there exists a category of objects (any
objects), defined as objects being made by artists
presented as art.

Art produced today, exhibited today and received today
can only be observed as emergency art that very day.
The next day the work or piece of art goes into the Delay Museum
There it can be acquired as a collector’s price (or go into the dust bin).
But at the same time it can be acquired as a prize for a collection.
It has ceased being urgent art.
If the artist hasn’t collected the piece exhibited in the Emergency Room
within 24 hours, that piece is a collectible.
