Signs of the city - Metropolis Speaking is a project of 15 months that explored the signs of European city, building a visual inventory of four representative cities through the use of digital photography and new media. Professional artists worked with young people from Berlin, London, Sofia and Barcelona to generate an inventive online database, an interactive and contemporary archive, free to access and use: citipix.net. The project launched a comparative study of the systems of signs of "the other" (European city, neighbourhood, social groups) inciting us to maintain a dialogue on these different levels.
