Generator III is an audiovisual installation, combining means of expression typical to fine arts with the spatial sound technology, generative composition, computer animation, and interaction. The installation is made up of walkable painting object in form of wooden podium with central projection screen covered with salt, three hanging painting objects, infrared—sensor—based software by Paweł Janicki controlling sound composition and projection of images.

The central accessible object is surrounded by three objects made up of paper tape (total length 130km), painted, coiled up in reels, and sticked with their back to the surface to expose its unique texture. Twardowski regards this process as a method of recording time and events, but first of all of recording the unique energy of pictorial gesture.
Presence and movements of visitors walking on the central platform, detected by the sensors, are transformed by a computer program into sounds and images projected on the salt screen. The electronic sounds and images, representing a flow of energy, provoke visitors to spontaneous and emotional reactions, which results in „amplified” response of image and sound layers.
Place and date of recording: Impart Art Center, Wrocław, Spring 2003
