Shia LaBeouf's latest stunt is to spend a month isolated in a cabin in Finland's remote Lapland region with his only communication with the outside world coming via text messages from visitors to a Helsinki museum. The project is called #ALONETOGETHER and involves the other two members of the actor's art collective, Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner. Ronkko and Turner are also spending time isolated in separate cabins in Lapland beginning Wednesday, reports the AP.

Visitors to the Kiasama museum in Helsinki can visit a small cabin installed in the gallery and send a text to LaBeouf, Ronkko, and Turner, who can respond to visitors but can't talk to one another. The public can view a livestream of museumgoers and the trio's texts (recently seen: "please come back someday" and "I meant maybe he went to the toilet"). In other LaBeouf livestream news, his anti-Donald Trump livestream has been a bumpy ride: Dazed reports it's been taken over by Liverpool's Foundation for Art and Creative Technology after 4Chan users turned it into their own reality show (the Washington Post explains the bizarre sequence of events). LaBeouf's film luck hasn't been much better lately. (More Shia LaBeouf stories.)
