So far in 2016, Shia LaBeouf has already spent 24 hours in an elevator, asked you to “touch [his] soul,” and livestreamed himself watching every single one of his movies, so it may not come as a surprise that he has a new piece of performance art in the works. But this one’s more personal than the others.
For the next month, the actor and collaborators Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner are hitchhiking around the state of Colorado using the hashtag #TakeMeAnywhere. When they need a lift, they’ll tweet out their GPS coordinates and then snag a ride from the first person who comes along to pick them up.
Unlike LaBeouf’s other projects, which used digital media to let you watch him from a safe distance, this new piece puts the star right in your passenger seat. And fans play a bigger role in shaping the art than they did before: LaBeouf and his buddies have no set destination; they’re simply going wherever their drivers decide to take them.
“What’s trippy is, it’s the most expansive and most intimate thing we’ve done,” LaBeouf told Vice.
They’re only two days into their journey, but fans are already making videos of their experiences on the road.
You can track the guys at takemeanywhere.vice.com. The project doesn’t end until June 23, so there’s plenty of time to try and find LaBeouf.
