Welcome on a virtual journey underneath the surface of mobile, urban subcultural phenomena. The essays of this experimental collection are written and visualized by researchers and artists of the Digital Youth in the Media City (DiMe) project. The purpose here is to bring forth topics of the project and to inspire new readers to explore in-depth texts, visuals and sounds that hail from research. We have created a multisensory piece where you as a reader are able to explore essays on youth subcultural phenomena in Helsinki and St. Petersburg, get acquainted with urban phenomena, enjoy visuals in the form of photographs and listen to urban soundscapes.
