What's the exactly name of the Scene if we want to call it a movement?

La demoscene, demoescena o escena es un movimiento artístico sin dogmas, ni organización centralizada. Es una forma de expresión artística surgida de forma esporádica en Europa en los años 80 (según algunos historiadores de la escena). La escena es como nos gusta llamar a toda la gente que forma parte de este movimiento.

This is Bob. Bob had bitch tits.
What about "dada elitism"? (that even makes gloom's posts a part of the movement!) But of course, calling something an artistic movement is something that is usually done afterwards, when looking back at it in hindsight.. So, i guess we'll have to wait until the scene is dead then!

Btw, "technical dada elitism" is perhaps even better

Bobs are unlimited!
the term 'digital graffitti' applies to a lot of demos in general...
Will Wright said that we practice 'the worship of the algorithm'...
When the handgun is up again my head, I describe the demos, not the community. I've used "algorithmic kinetic art."
As I've seen it, "Art" movements are when a bunch of kiss-ass snobs trump each other up and all paint/draw/record the same thing, so that gallery owners will buy/show their shit, or when a bunch of no-talent clowns copy a style from someone original. There've been big influential demos that changed people's style, but we're not hucksters trying to make a buck... and we don't alll push the same limits.
So, you could call the styles _within_ demomaking movements (the hypnobloom and object rotation period?) but not the whole thing. This is a medium, not a movement.

Ooh! How about the _cyberpunk hacker art revolution_

guybrush: real sceners dont worship the algorithm, the algorithm worships the real scener. for it can take it to places no other algorithm has gone before! and you probably meant to write hypnoglow instead of hypnobloom. :)

The term Outsider Art was coined by art critic Roger Cardinal in 1972 as an English synonym for Art Brut (which literally translates as "Raw Art" or "Rough Art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture; Dubuffet focused particularly on art by insane asylum inmates.

While Dubuffet's term is quite specific, the English term "Outsider Art" is often applied more broadly, to include certain self-taught or Naïve art makers who were never institutionalized. Typically, those labeled as Outsider Artists have little or no contact with the institutions of the mainstream art world; in many cases, their work is discovered only after their deaths. Much Outsider Art illustrates extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds.

I would call scene outsider digital art ;D
