One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

Iman's work aligns with the emerging recycled art movement. The artists create artwork from waste, giving it a second life through upcycling. The original product is transformed beyond the capability of traditional recycling, giving life to art that exceeds the initial economic, cultural and social value of the material. It aims to inspire through its critical message condemning excessive consumption and environmental pollution.

Second Life symbolises hope and opportunity through its recycling of nature. A dead tree, otherwise left to decay, is given a second life, a new value, and the ability to radiate light in its new form. The equal incisions into the tree radiate equal light and represent the gaps in our lives. The voids serve to remind us of light after dark, and life after death.
