#AloneTogether is a performance art project by actor Shia LaBeouf in collaboration with artists Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner, in which the trio will livestream themselves from three different remote cabins in Finland over the course of the month, sending video to a small cabin placed inside the Kiasma Museum in Helsinki, Finland.
On April 12th, the #AloneTogether stream was launched on the Kiasma Museum website. Visitors at the Kiasma Museum could send LaBeouf, Ronkko and Turner messages via text, which were subsequently posted on the website.
#ALONETOGETHER weaves a virtual link between Kiasma’s visitors and the artists. From 12 April 2017, LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner will spend a month in three remote cabins somewhere in Lapland, entirely cut off from other people. A video link to a small cabin installed in the gallery is their only point of contact with the outside world.
Shortly after, 4chan and 8chan users began attempting to locate the cabins based on wood patterns on the wall behind the artists (shown below, left). Meanwhile, YouTuber Brandi uploaded footage of LaBeouf responding to a vistor at the museum. Shortly after, screencaps from the footage began circulating online, along with claims that LaBeouf quoted Twitter user @spacetwinks in her responses (shown below, right).
That day, the @Liberal_Lunacy Twitter feed tweeted a screenshot of a image purportedly identifying LaBeouf's cabin, along with the message "#HWNDU oh… my… god… they did it" (shown below). That following day, the tweet was posted to /r/TheDonald, where it gained over 4,800 points (94% upvoted) and 430 comments in six hours.
Also on April 13th, YouTuber Brändi uploaded footage of a young man wearing a frog masked being removed away from the art installation at the Kiasma Museum (shown below).
