The actor partnered with students from London's Central Saint Martins art school on a bizzare new venture.

From walking the red carpet with a paper bag over his head to livestreaming his heartbeat, Shia LaBeouf's artistic vision has undoubtedly always been a bit bizarre.

The actor's latest art project was done in collaboration with students from London's Central Saint Martins art school as part of its Degree Show One event. In a nearly three-hour long live stream of the project, titled #Introductions, LaBeouf introduces the students' creative work and includes commentary on an odd array of topics, including dead jellyfish, motorcycle helmets and the benefits of deep breathing.

Below are the 18 weirdest moments from the actor's latest art project:
