Performance artist and friend to the Transformers, Shia LaBeouf, is tackling another bizarre art project where he get’s strangers to pick him up then drive him wherever they fancy.

The project, which is called #TAKEMEANYWHERE, started yesterday and sees LaBeouf plus his art mates, Rönkkö & Turner, post their coordinates on Twitter then anyone’s welcome to come along and drive them anywhere, Konbini reports.

LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner’s adventure is going to last the next 30 days and anyone interested can track the trio using the #TAKEMEANYWHERE website.

The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art commissioned the performance piece as part of MediaLive 2016, along with The Finnish Institute in London and is supposed to be a comment on corruption.

If you’re confused as to how a road trip has anything to do with corruption don’t worry the trio have explained in a predictably pretentious way.

They said:

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?

The artists have been hitch-hiking for less than 24 hours but they’ve already been picked up by three American guys who ended up going for lunch with the them, Shia was even kind enough to foot the bill.

So far the artists haven’t managed to go very far, basically sticking around The Rocky Mountains but if anyone fancies driving them all the way to the UK they’re more than welcome to go and pick them up.

Although does this amount to online stalking?
