Sweet life

Numbering our days in jelly beans.

Ever wondered, as you sat in traffic during your daily commute, just how much of your life is spent commuting or travelling from one place to another? It’s 1,099 days, according to performance artist Ze Frank, who has also broken down how much time we spend doing things like eating, sleeping or at work. He makes that reality a bit less bitter by representing it with jelly beans – approximately 28,835 of them, the average number of days in a person’s life – which dwindle away to show the time we have left. It may make you reflect: “How will I spend the rest of my days?” Or, perhaps more pertinent, “When was the last time I ate a jelly bean?”
