Many times in history, architectural objects have changed their purpose. In addition to directly dealing with this phenomenon, work CONVERTIBLE points to similarities in the functions and forms of various religious and profane buildings. The basis of the sculpture is a standardized object in the form of a box, on which different towers can be upgraded. The towers are made in the shape of a bell tower of a Christian church, a minaret of a mosque and a factory chimney. The whole building changes its meaning and becomes a church, a mosque or a factory depending on which tower is added to it. Changing one element changes the character and symbolism of the entire object. The sculpture is interactive because it allows visitors to change the tops themselves and thus influence the appearance of the work.
