Nicola Certo – weekly report

This week, I continued writing my part of the essay that will help describing the process and steps for our data collection.

I found very interesting the description that Georg Simmel gives about fashion. For him, fashion is explain as the phenomenon in which two different forces collaborates in the same unity. He talks about the demand of conformity of a group, but at the same time Simmel describes how also the desire of individuality is strong in the approach to fashion.

It’s important to clarify the power that fashion has today and why it’s a topic worthy to discuss from a social point of view. 

I’m also looking at tools to show Messy Data in our visualization part. We discussed about Ghepi.
