On this basis she showsareas of participation of contemporary young people, whobalance between two realities: the real and the virtual one.The author supports her reasoning with the concept of hybrididentity by Zygmunt Bauman and the global teenager/ culture of diffusion by Zbyszko Melosik. The aim of thisarticle is to make a subjective, socio-psychological interpretationof identity creations present in Szymon Kołoda’spicture, rather than psychological diagnosis of the teenageactor’s “inner integrity”.
