Fall Interns join Aurora Team

Oh how we LOVE our interns!  They become a part of the team each semester and while we hate to see them leave, we are always so thrilled to welcome new faces into the office.  We have said our farewells to Amber and Gisela, but have already been enjoying the company of our new recruits: Vanessa Godden and Jenny Lim.

As always, please welcome them to the Aurora team!

Vanessa Godden is currently pursuing her B.F.A. in the University of Houston’s Photography and Digital Media program. She is passionate about the arts and interested in achieving a career as a video artist. Some of her favorite artists/influences include Martha Rosler, Joan Jonas, Lewis Klahr, and Vito Acconci.

Jenny grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey and moved to Houston to go to Rice University, from where she graduated in May with a degree in philosophy and visual arts. As an aspiring filmmaker, artist, and writer, she hopes to combine her interests in religious studies, psychoanalytic theory, and cognitive therapy in teaching art at the university level. If she isn't watching a movie, she is usually listening to music or taking a walk. A short list of her favorite directors and dramatists are Anton Chekhov, Henrik Ibsen, Ingmar Bergman, Yasujiro Ozu, Akira Kurosawa, and Stanley Kubrick.
