What Shia did next.

You can't keep a good man down. 

Beyond sporting a rat-tail hairstyle, Shia LaBeouf has been awfully quiet of late, and we're not talking about his acting career. Well now the Fury star is back with his latest performance art project with #IAMSORRY collaborators Nastja Sade Ronkko and Luke Turner, reports the Independent. 

In a project called Follow My Heart, announced at SXSW, LaBeouf will livestream his heart beat for a week.

“When people say, 'listen to your heart,' they are urging us to turn in to the loving side of our selves; the imaginative, the intuitive, the compassionate, the inner wisdom we all possess. They are telling us to listen to our passion,” read a statement from LaBeouf and his collaborators.

“With our physical distance collapsed by the networks, that innermost and most intimate of rhythms will be rendered immediate on our digital screens. Like cats have whiskers, we too are born with a guidance system: our heart. It is our inner GPS, our map, and our guide. It promises to lead us down the path of maximum fulfillment. If you #FollowMyHeart, it may lead to yours.”

LaBeouf's latest art project follows his one in which he ran a "metamarathon" around a museum in Amsterdam 144 times, wore a paper bag over his head at a film premiere, as well as the infamous one-on-one performance art piece where the actor claims he was raped by a female visitor. LaBeouf's personal life has also been littered with bizarre and very public antics, including drinking heavily and being arrested during a Broadway performance of Cabaret.
