WATCH Shia LaBeouf Spends 24 Hours Inside an Elevator for New Art Project

Shia LaBeouf is trapping himself inside an elevator in the name of art.

LaBeouf is spending 24 hours straight inside an elevator at Oxford University in England for his latest public art project, titled #ELEVATE.

The 29-year-old actor is partnering with artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner in the art installment, and the entire project will be broadcast through a live stream on YouTube so that people from around the world can watch the installation.

"Visitors will be able to join LaBeouf, Rönkkö and Turner inside the elevator during [the 24 hours], and are invited to address the artists, the debating chamber, and the internet, so that their collective voices may form an extended, expansive and egalitarian Oxford Union address," the description of the live feed on YouTube reads

The live-stream shows people continuously joining LaBeouf, Rönkkö and Turner in the elevator, and chatting with the group about a variety of topics in a casual atmosphere.

This is hardly LaBeouf's first dabble into performance art. The actor is becoming known for his performance art projects, which typically involve an interactive element that creates a worldwide buzz.

In February 2014, LaBeouf hosted an installment called #IAMSORRY, where the actor invited members of the public to have a one-on-one with him at a gallery in Los Angeles. The actor remained silent for the entirety of the five-day project.

This past November, LaBeouf hosted a three-day art project in New York City called #AllMyMovies, where the actor watched every single movie he has been a part of at the Angelika Film Center. LaBeouf opened up the theater to the public for anyone to come and go as they please.

In December, LaBeouf, Rönkkö and Turner hosted an art project in Liverpool, England, titled "#TouchMySoul," where the trio fielded thousands of calls from people around the world and asked the same question the entire time: "Can you touch my soul?"
