He’s at it again! In Shia LaBeouf’s latest art installation, he’s riding in an elevator for 24 hours and chatting with the people that ride with him. Click inside to WATCH!
Shia LaBeouf, 29, loves to surprise the world with seriously unique and different art projects along with his co-creators, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner.
It’s official: Shia has taken an elevator in Oxford, London hostage. Okay, maybe that’s a bit dramatic… he’s actually just opted to stay inside and ride it up, down, and back up again with it’s passengers as they come and go. Yes, that means for exactly 24 hours, you could potentially end up inside an elevator with Shia talking about anything from the weather and politics to his favorite kitchen utensil. (For the record, he told one rider it was a fork.)
However, if you’re determined to make this close encounter happen, you’re in luck! Shia has shared the exact address of the elevator he’s riding in on Twitter, allowing absolutely anyone and everyone to come and join him in the small box. How cool is that?
Of course you probably already know that this is not the first time Shia has allowed the world’s population such an incredibly close one-on-one encounter with him. It started with his #IAMSORRY project, in which he wore a paper bag over his head and sat across a table in a closed room from individuals in Los Angeles, California.
Then he hit New York City with a 72-hour marathon of all of his movies, in which we watched him laugh, cry, and even share his popcorn and pizza with fellow movie goers. That one was called #ALLMYMOVIES.
Before taking on the elevator, Shia and his co-creators and artists, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, took phone calls on a live 24-hour hotline from people all over the world. Calling it #TOUCHMYSOUL, the three artists encouraged callers to tell them something special about themselves or someone they loved.
