Shia LaBeouf has locked himself in an elevator – for art, that is.

That’s right, LaBeouf, 29, is back with his latest performance art project and believe it or not, this one outdoes the last.

This time around, for his new stunt entitled #ELEVATE, the actor has committed himself to spending 24 hours inside an elevator in Oxford, England, with two other performance artists.

And of course, he’s live-streaming the entire thing (though you can only see him when the doors open).

During LaBeouf’s time inside the cramped quarters, fans can visit him to ride along, take selfies and ask him basically anything they want.

“Visitors will be able to join LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner inside the elevator during this time, 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,” reads the video description.

While LaBeouf appears to be tired when the doors open, he’s been friendly to those who join him for a ride. So far, he’s taken countless selfies, assured people that he will eat during his time inside the elevator, complained about Tinder and even shared his favorite song with a group of inquisitive fans.

Once the 24 hours are up, LaBeouf, along with collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, will emerge to address the Oxford union on Friday evening.=

But wait, it’s not over yet: Following the talk, the trio will go back into the elevator to finish the piece of performance art.

This project comes just months after LaBeouf screened every film he’s ever starred in over a three-day period in a New York City movie theater.

One can only guess what his next project will involve.
