“Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf has been posting under the Twitter hashtag #takemeanywhere, inviting people to pick him up and, like the hashtag says, take him anywhere.
Every day at noon, through June 23, LaBeouf releases his coordinates and allows the first person to get to him take him and his entourage anywhere. LaBeouf is traveling with artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner as part of a month-long project for the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Finnish Institute in London. Some of the coordinates LaBeouf tweeted out spelled out the phrase “Take Me Anywhere.”
The project focuses on examining corruption through the good old tradition of the road trip and provide insight into humanity. BMoCA MediaLive festival director Nicole Dial-Kay told the Daily Camera, “They’re opening themselves up to goodness or possibly the corrupt nature… It’s about openness and exploration and connecting to people. The group has placed no limits on where they can be taken and even provide food and gas money.
