'Taking Stock' explores human consumption by cataloguing and categorising all of Pandey's belongings after one year of moving to Iowa. Everything is listed using images and according to the materials used in their manufacture. There are 6 different lists including 'Mostly Plastic to 100% Plastic', 'Organic:Cloth' and 'Organic: Paper, Wood'. Radha Pandey is an important young papermaker, letterpress printer and book artist. She is particularly interested in paper and watermarks as art, studying both Western and Asian papermaking techniques. Her work is always exquisite, unique and breathtakingly beautiful.
