M. LUNA CARGO CHERNOFF
M. Luna Cargo-Chernoff was born in Vancouver in the mid 1990’s.
At age 19 she studied forestry at BCIT. It was here that she found her first punch card; afterwards it was difficult for her to focus on school. Since 2015 her main body of work has stemmed from these cards.
"A note on technology: With the creation of any technology comes the risk of being dated before release; the construction ends but time marches on. Punch cards were the primary form of data storage for 90 years- now they are symbolic of a time bygone. I aspire to evoke a feeling of timelessness and beauty with these cards, something to last a long time, longer than my very life-."
Currently her work is showing at 265 East 2nd Ave, Vancouver BC:
