Shia LaBeouf's New Project Is You Tracking Him Down And Giving Him A Lift
Shia LaBeouf's collaborative art trio LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner is back after answering your phone calls, spending 24 hours in a lift and responding to interview questions with poems with a new oh so very meta project: #TAKEMEANYWHERE.
The basic principle is that the threesome are allowing anyone who finds them gets to pick them up and legit take them anywhere. Kicking off yesterday, the artists' coordinates are posted on Twitter before the public is invited to collect them. Whoever makes it to them first can drive them anywhere they so please.
LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner's project (experiment?) will last for the next 30 days and you can track their progress on the official #TAKEMEANYWHERE website.
Commissioned by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art as part of MediaLive 2016, along with The Finnish Institute in London and in partnership with VICE, the project is a comment on corruption – the theme of this year's MediaLive.
In a statement announcing the adventure, the trio explain:
"The American road trip has long been symbolic of a collective yearning to seek out beauty and truth within a corrupt nation.
"As part of MediaLive 2016’s Corruption theme, #TAKEMEANYWHERE asks, can we find such truths within the corrupted networks of society, and preserve something of the utopian naivety of the Internet age?"
Although it's been less than 24 hours since the artists' road trip commenced, some dudes have already posted a video of them having lunch with LaBeouf on YouTube.
In the video posted by Dan Rachlitz, three American guys are tracking LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner's coordinates, in an attempt to make it to them before anyone else does. They successfully make it to Shia and he buys them lunch. Ain't that sweet!
Now will you be giving them a ride?
