In February, students in London found themselves in close quarters with Shia LaBeouf when the actor decided to spend 24 hours inside an Oxford University lift. Now, people in the US could end up having the actor as a passenger in their car - if they can find him.
LaBeouf is asking drivers to pick him and his collaborators on previous projects, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, up from random locations by tweeting his GPS coordinates. All three are currently travelling across mountains in Colorado and are being transported by drivers who managed to track down their location.
LaBeouf’s hitchhike comes within a canon of unusual work with Rönkkö and Turner that has seen him watch all of his own films one after the other and sit in a Los Angeles art gallery for days as part of a live installation.
This project literally has a broader scope than his others in that those who collect the trio have the chance to take them anywhere, hence the name #TAKEMEANYWHERE. Their journey was commissioned by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Finnish Institute in London and will continue for a month, according to Vanity Fair. Watch this space to see where they end up.
