We exploit nonlinear propagation in photorefractive crystals to observe the phenomenology associated with the collision and interaction of solitons of different tranverse dimensions: a self-trapped stripe and a round soliton. Along with evidence of particlelike behavior, our results indicate the emergence of a new phenomenology related to the hybrid-dimensional system.
