In a move that would be unusual for anyone except Shia LaBeouf, the actor, filmmaker and performance artist is spending a month alone in a remote cabin in Finland, starting today.
ET Online reports that LaBeouf, 30, “will only be able to communicate with the outside world via text message. Visitors of the Kiasma museum in Helsinki will be able to text LaBeouf, along with members of his art collective, Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner, who will be in separate cabins nearby.”
“While LaBeouf, Ronkko and Turner will be able to text with people, they are forbidden to have contact with one another,” the report notes. “For fans that can’t make it out to Helsinki, a livestream of the museum and LaBeouf’s texts are on the museum’s website.”
The project, dubbed “#ALONETOGETHER,” comes after LaBeouf had to bring an early close to what was supposed to be a four-year Trump protest, “He Will Not Divide Us.” That project, which was set up in front of the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, N.Y., was shut down by the museum after a hassle involving LaBeouf and a spectator.
The “He Will Not Divide Us” project has reportedly been adopted by the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool, England.
