ale-de-la-puente-foto-001Ale de la Puente studied industrial design (UIA, Mexico City), goldsmithing (Escola Masana de Artes I Oficis, Barcelona, Spain), and naval construction (The Arques School, Sausalito, California), and she is currently studying astronomy and nuclear science. She is a self-taught artist who explores notions of time using the poetics of space from technological, scientific, and even linguistic approaches. In her work, she explores the time-space relationship and our image in the world, using different media. Her recent work is focused on interdisciplinary approaches, showing her interest in generating a profoundly thoughtful process about the possibilities of integrating art, philosophy, and science as a whole, thus leading to creative processes that are nurtured by different images of the world from a daily life perspective. She has been a collaborator at the Instituto Nacional de Astronomía, and for the past three years with the Instituto de Ciencias Nucleares.

De la Puente has been a member of the National System of Creators sponsored by FONCA; she received an Honorable Mention from Collide@CERN Ars Electronica, Austria, 2012; and has received national and international awards. She has had collective and one-woman exhibits in Mexico, Italy, France, India, Japan, Argentina, Peru, USA, Spain, Germany, and England. Ale de la Puente collaborated with inSite/Casa Gallina discussing Edgardo Aragón’s project when it was first presented.
