    I Went To Shia LaBeouf's "He Will Not Divide Us" Art Installation And It Was Honestly A Blast

    He accepted my weird ball of lollipops.

    Let me start off by saying that I think Shia LaBeouf is brilliant.

    So when I heard he was doing a piece just a short walk from my apartment, I was like, duh, I'm going to that.

    Shia is currently chanting "He will not divide us" into a camera mounted outside the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, in peaceful protest of Donald Trump's presidency. The camera will remain there for as long as Trump is president. I'm not sure how long Shia will be there, but based on the size of the coffee he was drinking, it could be a long time. Either way, you can watch the livestream here.

    Here's what the video looks like when you're watching at home.

    And here's what it looks like when you're there.

    Also intimate! There are no lines or security or anything. Just Shia and some local teens talking to a camera in a wall on the street.

    When I showed up I was holding a styrofoam ball full of lollipops, which was a centerpiece at a 1-year-old's birthday I'd just come from.

    Lollipop balls aside, it was a blast bopping and chanting with Queens teens who have more art inside them than the museum* they're standing next to.

    And I got to see some of the people I'd recognized from watching the livestream at my desk on the day of the inauguration, like Red Hair Girl.

    And Flower Boy, who gave me a flower!

    If you live close to Astoria, you should go and chant and dance and sing with Red Hair Girl and Flower Boy and Shia LaBeouf and whatever is left of that lollipop ball. It's fun!
