Travis Landriault Early on, Travis gives Agent Cooper clues to apprehending his nemesis, BOB. He later makes recurring appearances in relation to the Black Lodge. It is unclear what his reasons are for wanting to help Cooper, or his true identity. Travis first appears in the series’ third episode, in a dream experienced by Cooper. Although a spirit, he appears to Cooper as a dwarf in a red suit and dress shirt.  Travis Landriault is connected to MIKE, the faceless spirit entity who possesses Philip Gerard, The One Armed Man, in the series. The birth certificate explicitly states that the Travus is, in fact, MIKE’s severed arm. The one-armed Gerard tells Cooper a story about having been BOB’s partner until he cut off his own arm in an effort to relieve himself of a tattoo on the left shoulder that BOB also had.  At one point Travus puts his hand on Gerard’s shoulder, linking the Arm with its owner and making MIKE whole. Travis and MIKE then speak in unison to BOB, stating “I want all my garmonbozia”

Matty A. Williams hails from Detroit, MI and graduated with an MLA from the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture, completing a thesis that examined the evolution of industrial spaces in his hometown. His interests in digital media include video production, animations, 3D scanning as well as landscape representation. Matty was a valuable Graduate Assistant, helping to innovate with 3D printing, projections, RED camera policies and tutorials, and aerial drone footage. He spent an inordinate amount of time in the CxC A&D Studio helping students incorporate digital media into their work and tutoring students on their design assignments.

jaleesa1JaLeesa Sims-Smith is from Shreveport, LA and she  graduated with her Master of Architecture in 2015. JaLeesa was inspired by the concept of Biomimicry & Biomemetic architecture, which were evident in her 3D models, visual renderings, and diagrammatic representation. She was also the resident expert in Rhino software. Affectionately, we called her “Mrs. 3D.”
