Shia LaBeouf Is Spending 24 Hours In An Elevator On Purpose

His latest performance art piece.

Shia LaBeouf's post-Hollywood stardom phase has been, in a word, interesting. Dabbling with relatively normal activities such as rapping to intentionally provocative stunts such as wearing a paper bag over his head in public, or jumping rope for an hour straight, he's either bored or developing into a brilliant performance artist. Actually, it could very well be both.

His latest work is called #ELEVATE, and features him and a group of people shut inside an elevator for 24 hours, only exiting for quick backroom breaks. He and all his lift companions — including musical collaborators Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner — entered at 9 a.m. local time Friday and will exit at 9 a.m. Saturday. Afterward, he'll give a talk at the Oxford Union.

Luckily, for those high-art aficionados, there's a live stream available to watch and listen in. Pull up a chair and enjoy:
