Shia Labeouf is hitting the road for his latest artistic endeavor.
The actor and his two collaborators, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, are hitchhiking across the country in a project they are calling #TAKEMEANYWHERE.
The three started off in Boulder, Colorado, on May 23 and will stay on the road until June 23. They will tweet their coordinates after every ride and the first person to pick them up can take them wherever the person chooses. Fans can follow along with an interactive map in real time.
“With these projects, we try to retain a naïveté, or that’s the goal,” LaBeouf told Vice. “The goal is to sort of stay naïve, stay impressionable, stay malleable.”
After the trip is over, the Finnish Institute in London and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art will screen a documentary about the trio’s journey.
This is the latest in a long line of performance art pieces concocted by Labeouf in recent years. Back in February, he rode an elevator at Oxford University for 24 hours and broadcast the whole thing live on the Internet.
Last year, he sat in a New York theater that screened every one of his movies in succession. Fans were able to come watch classics like “The Even Stevens Movie” and “Transformers” right along with the actor.
