Kelly Krumrie’s “Figuring”: On Dams

Figuring is a monthly column that puzzles over (to figure) and gives shape to (a figure) writing, art, and environments that integrate or concern mathematics and the sciences. This month's column ponders water, power, possession, and human space.

Professor Milford Graves moved onward & upward to whatever comes next on February 12, 2021, just in time for Lunar New Year. I heard about his illness sometime in summer 2020 & began writing this piece shortly thereafter. I seem to have finished it just as Graves’ corporeal phase has finished. Professor Graves, thank you for a lifetime of inspiration.
