Shia LaBeouf & Friends Are Hitchhiking Through the U.S.

All in the name of art. 

By |

Apparently Shia LaBeouf missed the latest Uber update. The eccentric actor, artist, and producer, along with fellow artistic collaborators Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner, have been tweeting their GPS coordinates and asking strangers to take them anywhere. And they started the journey right here in Colorado, in a “strange” cabin in the woods.

Here’s how it works: LaBeouf, Rönkkö, and Turner tweet their coordinates every day using #TAKEMEANYWHERE. Then they wait for a ride, and the adventure begins (sometimes fueled by lunch with Colorado natives at an Oskar Blues Brewery—watch the video below). The performance art stunt was commissioned by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art as part of MediaLive—a week-long exposé of contemporary art built around the theme of corruption—and the Finnish Institute in London.

You can follow along with the trio—dubbed The Campaign Book—as they move about the U.S. over the next few weeks (the project ends June 23). But even if you miss them on the road, their escapades—of which, we assume there will be plenty—will be featured in a film to be shown at the BMoCA and The Finnish Institute.

Constantly on the move, the thrill-seeking crew last chronicled their coordinates on June 1 in Arizona. But since they’ll go anywhere the public takes them, the explorers could swiftly find themselves back in the Mile High City—and in your car (if you’re down for that).
