FORSST is a generative landscape that was created with Python and Panda3D. Every time you start FORSST the current Yahoo! World News RSS feed is scanned. For every letter and depending on how often it occurs, a tree is planted in the landscape. Every mountain represents a keyword that can usually be read in the news. The height of the mountains is dependent on how often this word is used.
