This project was shortlisted by The Other Hundred and took part in the group exhibition called Тhe Other Hundred Healers. It was on display from 28th Oct through 15th Nov 2020​​​​​​​ in the Department of Journalism, Hong Kong Baptist University, China.
In 2020 the traditional Carnival of Humour and Satire in Gabrovo, Bulgaria, took residents by surprise due to COVID-19.
Normally, there are a hundred carnival tableaux and over 2,500 masked participants. Due to the pandemic, only three carnival sculptures - the Crying Planet Earth, wearing a face mask; the Cat, the town's mascot, and the "National Operational Headquarters" – paraded this year but, unlike other years, they were able to travel to almost all the neighbourhoods as opposed to just the downtown area.
Rather than cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the parade proceeded so that people could enjoy themselves during the stay-at-home period. Many viewers dressed in colourful outfits, and enthusiastically participated in a contest to find the "Best Carnival Balcony." One of the Carnival hosts, seen communicating with masked participants on their balcony, was Dani Belev, a famous magician. The two-hour-long livestream was watched by over 90,000 people around the world.
