Over the last weekend of February 2016, HOWL Projects delve into the vast bizarre and threatening global travel industry. Through live participatory illustration HOWL invites Brighton to join in a satirical and creative appreciation of easy-jet culture.


Residency // 26th-28th February 2016

What is territory and does it limit us?

Do we return to our birthplace as tourists?

Is global travel empowering or does it inspire isolation?

“In an increasingly busy world we understand that holidays are one of life’s most precious commodities.

Not too long ago, the world wasn’t much more than a set of sprawling deserts. Nowadays, sand dunes give way to Skyscrapers.

The global individual can no longer count on a stable environment; he is doomed to be exiled. The challenge is to produce a semi-autonomous system that can detect, identify, monitor and report a range of physical threats in an urban environment. A man of the whole world, in the midst of the fugitive and the infinite, assigned a limit beyond which she or he becomes counterproductive. Start your year of YES today and satisfy the totality of your needs including those which are still inarticulate. Modulate the conceptual frequency!
(disclaimer –

We’re not part of TIC Group – one of the world’s leading travel companies. And all of our holidays are designed to help you Discover Your Smile.)

            For one weekend we offer a free upgrade to Premium Economy…

                           … with exclusive access to….The World Traveller Plus cabin….

This features a smaller number of rows for a more intimate and exclusive experience but you’ll find the small cabin big on space and big on features, including:

Expanded Global Communication systems allowing simultaneous experiences of utopia, consumption, culture and poverty: where you can see the swerve of deviation appears as the principle of all reality.”

About Howl Projects:

Howl Projects is an art & illustration collective working mostly within the field of pop surreal and ‘low brow’ art. All of the artists at Howl Projects are working illustrators embarking on more ambitious and tailored projects such as large scale installations, mural painting and live art.

Howl Projects launched in Berlin in the summer of 2015 and has since exhibited at Doomed Gallery in Dalston, London. The aim of Howl Projects is to create exceptional art events, push the boundaries of contemporary illustration and find the corners of contemporary practice where some might fear to tread.
