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 phone’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, “I’m important”; the wearer can then decide to take the call or to merely bask in its glow.
