NEW CASTLE, Ind.– Actor Shia LaBeouf’s latest project has him traveling across the country using his Twitter coordinates.

The project is called “Take Me Anywhere.” He teamed up with Vice News, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Finnish Institute in London.

LaBeouf and two artists use their GPS coordinates broadcast via Twitter to allow random strangers to pick them up and take them anywhere, all in the name of art.

He arrived in New Castle on Thursday, according to the New Castle Courier-Times.

The project began on May 23 and is expected to last until June 23.

The Courier Times also reported that a local mechanic shop helped a woman who was driving him around with some car repairs.

The stop in New Castle wasn’t LaBeouf’s only visit in the Hoosier State. He was also in northern Indiana, where he dined with a family.

LaBeouf first gained fame on the Disney Channel series “Even Stevens.” He later went on to star in three “Transformers” movies directed by Michael Bay.
