glowscarf telegraphs your status by lighting up whenever your cellphone rings.
Inspired by the notion of cellphone as status symbol, Glowscarf is a commentary on our use of technology to transmit messages about ourselves, in this case, our own sense of importance. By giving the cell phoneâ€™s ring an external signal, the wearer is free to embrace the status of being in-demand, without necessarily needing to answer the call. The glow of the scarf says, â€œIâ€™m importantâ€; the wearer can then decide to take the call or to merely bask in its glow.
