Shia LaBeouf’s most infamous installation as an artist may be a live camera stream that opened on the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Called “HeWillNotDivide.Us,” the project’s camera feeds to a website where art fans used to be able to see Shia getting into fights. After a few months of silence, the project has resurfaced in a less than likely locale.

While they were there, a live link to a museum in the Finnish capital city, Helsinki, gave museum patrons a chance to ask questions and interact with the secluded artists. A new interview from the museum gives the artists a chance to remember their best and worst moments from their time there.
“Some people would come in there like, ‘Show me the art,'” an intense Shia complained in the interview. “They didn’t realize they were a part of it. They were looking at it objectively instead of being involved.”
Shia LaBeouf had to pull his protest live stream, HeWillNotDivide.US, offline again. His latest collaboration with Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner has gone dead at its brand new New Mexico location despite working closely with local police. Shia took to Twitter to share why the stream was down again, writing that it was due to gunshots reported nearby.
The project has already had some struggles with safety. Shia himself was arrested at the live stream’s original New York location after getting into a physical altercation with a counter-protestor. Since the recent move to New Mexico, vandals have already spray painted the installation. While critics have called what Shia is up to “treason,” he’s always dedicated to his art.
Check out Shia’s tweet and what the live stream looks like now below.
Do you think this stream will really go for four years like Shia promised?

Anyone hoping to remain undivided with Shia LaBeouf and his artistic collaborators will have to head to New Mexico now. The latest project from Shia, Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner was shut down outside of the Museum of the Moving Image in New York on February 10, but it’s back online now. Shia, Nastja and Luke have moved their four-year live stream to outside of the El Rey Theatre in Albuquerque, New Mexico, because of failures on the part of the New York museum.
Shia LaBeouf has been announced as a headliner for Bingefest, a new festival being hosted at the Sydney Opera House. The festival is bringing a twist to business as usual for events. Foregoing a regular schedule, it will run for over 24 hours straight. And it will feature Shia and his regular artistic collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner presenting a brand new art project…for 14 hours.
