I researched how many days I will probably live, by examining the latest medical researches on the topic of aging. 

33.580 days (approximately 92 years), was the conclusion of that research. I created a calendar for those 33.580 days, starting off from my date of birth. During a two hour long performance on the 29th of April 2017 (Now&Then exhibition, Rotterdam), I started crossing off the exact amount of days I'd lived that day, which were 10.081 days. In 2019 in performed again with this calander, crossing off another 750 days.
