'Transformers' star Shia LaBeouf announced on Thursday via Twitter his latest piece of performance art, in which he and his team that includes his art collaborators - Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner - will allow the public to pick them up at coordinates posted online and leave them anywhere they wish.

The first lucky people to take the hitchhikers up on their offer were a trio of Coloradans, who took them to a local diner in an unknown place.
The trio’s journey, which will end on June 23, will be recorded as a documentary and will later be screened at the Finnish Institute in London and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.
“Joined by two collaborators, Nastja Sade Ronkko, and Luke Turner, LaBeouf is going on a walkabout for the 21st century, asking fans to give him rides based on the coordinates he tweets out, and allowing the first person to pick him up to take him wherever the person chooses,”
"With these projects, we try to retain a naivete - or that’s the goal. This new project is about making friends." said LaBeouf, while Rönkkö added, “It’s about trust, and also a journey. I’m more interested in the in-between state than arriving at a destination.”
One fan shared a picture of his hitchhiking journey with the 29-year-old with a caption that read 'My brother met Shia LaBeouf on his hitchhiking journey and went hiking with him.'
